What would you consider calm?

Maybe a tropical palm

Or a vibrant butterfly on an infant’s

Sprouting hair

Yet even a single tulip

Amidst the life that’s bare

Or a teeming cub

In a mother bear’s lair

Could it be the sea?

So clean

So pure

And yet

There isn’t anything I’d


Except choosing

The look on an

Innocent face

So fresh

So content.
