Chasing Stardust

She lost herself in thought,

the way she had in childhood,

chasing stardust and a trail

of flowers to a land of green

hills and open sky, a place

she visits anytime she has

a minute to wander past a river

to a garden where she 

and her butterfly friends 

attend a picnic under 

the watchful care of a little

tree, arms just wide enough

to shade small parties

such as these, and she is safe

in this wonderous place

of her own imagining.
