In The Now

Where did all this water
come from, look tadpoles,
hear the birds,
feel the grass,
ice cream, ice cream,
dragonflies, wow,
quick let’s go there,
no, here,
silly, so slow, come on,
you’ve missed it,
it’s gone now,
shoes, where’s my shoes?
O, there they are,
I’m hungry, cake?
Yes, cake,
more cake?
not sandwiches, cake,
can I run now?
Do we really have to go?
Whys? I’m having fun,
can I stay, please?
Come on,
Five more minutes?
