Em’s sculpture

I look down from tossing quinoa and marinating turkey

And she has transformed my kitchen into a garden

Of trees that tower tall and straight in a manicured row.

“These are my babies,” she announces, triumphant…

Then…”What do they say?” she asks.

“You tell me,” I whisper in awe, knowing

She watches every flicker and twitch in my face.

“Goo goo, ga-ga,” she decides without hesitation,

And my joy erupts in a fountain of laughter.

It amazes me that in the center she adds height as a focal point.
