Once in a Lifetime…

My parents gasp. The sun fades from view. I take off my glasses.

The moon looks bigger. Looking at us, a moment frozen in time for but a few minutes. 
The moon is blossoming, the beautiful wings of the sun reaching out. 
We hear people cheer as I take a picture. Once in a lifetime. A moment frozen in time.

  • Two Years Ago

    I remember

    Almost two years ago now

    I remember it quite clearly

    By the vent where cool air was blowing

    Thinking I’ll never see this place again.

    I look at the classroom around me.

    5th grade.

  • Daydreamer

    I am a daydreamer

    As I walk along the fields,

    math, science, or English lessons don't fill my mind

    No, I see stories

    I think of things that puzzle me

    I think of superheroes

    How each one is different
