Just for Today

by Patricia Baugh


Inspiration image

For today I want
to feel the wind
on my face
to let my inner
child come out
and play
to lay on a sea of green
and give names to large
clouds passing by
to feel the wind
pushing my body so high
that my toes touch the
tops of the trees
to wrap myself in
quilted softness
and lay my head down
to dream, dreams of
happy times and perfect days
Just for today
