Barefoot child with tousled hair
toes anchored in prairie dust
limbs tanned and nose freckled

greeting father’s return from the field
lifted high in arms so strong
inhaling smell of sweat and sunshine
familiar chuckle speaking love

memories linger, caught in sunbeams
still today.

  2. What a wonderful memory. I remember waiting for my grandpa's old red Ford pickup truck making it's way up the hill on the dirt road and him slowing down so I could hop on the running board. So blessed are we.
