I caught a glimpse of her today
half-devoured by my wooden rocker

so petite

one tiny foot tucked beneath her
swaying her other foot

among ripples of lavender silk

with rhythm
her delicate fingers

counting accents and

in mid air
and I recognized her

when she scrunched up her

and the tip of her rose-petal tongue
kissed the air
