For Twiglet #278

Full of Light

We sat under the cherry tree,
lost in its leaves, lost in green,
our fingers stained ruby.

       Fill 2 bowls for a pie, Mum said.

Those days, layered between clouds,
it was a time to embrace. It was
as it should be. Full of light.

    1. In a way, I probably was. When you’re a child, every summer is the arrival of something new.
