Dangling feet


I love the sight
of little feet dangling
from a chair
that’s too high for them.

There’s a promise
in that picture
of heights to reach
and times yet to come.

One day those feet
will not dangle anymore
they’ll be all grown up
comfortably touching the floor.

But until that time comes
all too soon and somewhat
suddenly, I get to look at them
and hug this moment to me.
