6 year old on love, a poem

I love you so much

Love makes me happy

I don’t know how big love is

What does love look like?


Love is any color

Love is everybody

I know I love you



Shake it off

Melt it down


Shake it down

Throw it out


Wait for it

Hold it down



Love will set you free.

Take from the world what you will

Will from the world what you need

Scream it to the skies, let it out

Cup your hands and catch the sun

I’ll share this with you and come undone

Spiral into sacred water, let you drink

Beat through your heart, feed your soul

Freeze back to me and leave you full

Get lost with me through the trees

Full and empty just with camaraderie

Wait for the fire to rain through the clouds

Fly when gravity holds you like a mother

Closer to my breast, feel this warmth inside

Charge and cheer your way to me

I spread this love, love will set you free

Third Button

Moving unnervingly, blistering on the edge of my sight

Pick your poison, zoom in to my lonely retreat

Decider of my fate, you care about nothing

Nothing but the movement, guided by my hand

Do it twice, I think that I just might

I don’t have to wait, I’ll do it all at once

Never here nor there, but you move around

Relentless, waiting without the faintest note

Ever in the box of my sight, my wandering eye

My wondering eye, attended to my shifting thoughts

I wait listlessly, forever amused and forever bored

Entertain me


Tiny knot in the sand waiting for me

Untidy, untie me, grains rush past

Slivers of gold and silver fractured through time

Rushing in white, leaving in blue

Flashes of weight left over from before

Withered, weathered bones of the Earth

Through the glass iris into the depths

Tiny tangle waiting for the hands

Slowly tumble back
