…because when you are imagining, you might as well imagine something worth while…” ― L.M. Montgomery

We have walked by

this same corner along

this same trek so many 

times before, but today 

it became whimsical

when a little friend

seemed to pause 

and look back before 

going up a winding

staircase, and so our 

neighborhood changed

into a fairytale

forest with talking

squirrels who live

in grand treehouses

and invite weary 

walkers in for pecan

cookies and tea —

I can just 

imagine how 

very lovely 

that would be —

Oh, thank you,

God, for what 

child there is 

that still exists 

in me.
