Children

written by: Heidi Baker

@heidib19

 

Children
drip glue
give gifts
draw glittery rainbows
giggle
hug
swing
jump
tell stories
cry fast
love love

see
cloud unicorns
mother's eyes
sidewalk stones
faces
a long way
daddy's arms
hidden cake
music
cloud horses
possibility

believe
fairies dance
red paint helps
friends are forever
magic
words create
books breathe
angels speak
cookies heal
grandpa
dandelions grant wishes

hear
silence
grandma's kiss
crickets
snow flakes
under-bed whispers
kindness
butterfly wings
puppies
wind chimes
every word

are
full of ideas
open
easily delighted
trusting
vulnerable
beauty
easily discouraged
delicate
irreplaceable
who we were (are)

Heidi Baker is a second-generation poet and story teller whose writing reflects inner landscapes shaped by journeys of miles and other measures: from Illinois to Arizona, work to home, childhood to adulthood to parenthood. Gentle, imaginative, full of honesty and wonder, her clear writing captures the sacredness of everyday moments. In addition to her growing body of published works, Heidi creates space for other writers, youth and adult, through facilitation of workshops and groups.
