A Matched Set

She carries mischief
around in a bag,
like so much pixie dust
she can pull out
and throw in the air,
catching the sunlight,
making her eyes sparkle
(green then blue).
She smiles, knowing that,
while daddy pretends to be
beyond mischief,
a small tug can pull him back
from beyond,
creating magic
under mommy’s rolling eyes.


  1. Wonderful, Jerry! I have a bag of mischief at my house, too! ;)
    LOVE "like so much pixie dust" and "green then blue." I can see this.


  2. Can see this one so clearly -- pixie dust and blue/green sparkle eyes -- lovely! :-)
