I’m a Unicorn

April 15, 2012

It was the day we laughed so hard
we made the orchids bloom

I was 10
it was sunny

we were running like cats
a game of hide and seek
happiness all balled up in our eyes
shooting out of us in shrieks and bellows

I’m a unicorn
she declared

and I decided I was too

an adored unicorn
with nothing to do
but chase the wind

they say it whips you in the face
but this isn’t how it works
if you run hard enough
the wind bores right into you

I don’t remember anything else
except the smell of the sunshine
sweet as strawberry shortcake

the wind carried the rest away.

I absolutely LOVE this poem! So much so, I wish I wrote it myself.  But, I didn’t.
