I dreamed of a sweet red cherry

I kissed her

Tasting the wild tang

Juice running down my lips

I held the pit upon my tongue

Still attached

I twirled the stem

Until I had stolen all her flavor

Day twelve… Image twelve… Poem twelve….

Years fall away fast…
Is half a century old…?
The heart knows it’s not…

My daughter turns 18 today…
I can hardly believe that much time has passed…
And then I remember all the days…
Good and difficult, fun and frustrating…
People congratulate me and I can’t understand why…
They say I raised a great daughter…
But I feel I was only along for the ride…
She’s beautiful, smart and so complete…
And yet, she is still young, new and vulnerable…
And still needing me…
As she wades out deeper into the world…
I hope that she knows I will always be here…
Her shelter in any storm…
Though with or without me…
She will travel on…
She is my explorer, my music, my funny girl…
And I am her truth teller, her confidant, her mom…
But even more… I am her life long friend…
And she is mine…
Forever…
