' ' ' ' ' Blue Dress(For Junie)

We sit
in an enormous field

that greens
around us

your blue dress
nailing us to
the centre of the universe

you making me
jewellery

of bright young daisies

as I breathe softly
upon a dandelion clock

and time
holding forever

your laughing
beautiful face

smiling through the dancing
dandelion seeds

as I smile

years later through my tears

Nice one again dónall
What phrasing! That green field with 'Your blue dress nailing us to the center of the universe! ' Just awesome, and just the way children feel they are! Perfect!
seems more like a tragedy to me but good job
