Lay your head down here my dear,
Pull up a blanket and let’s gaze at the stars,
Stretch onto your back and crane up your neck,
and we’ll travel to places afar.
Shall we explore for awhile Orion’s Belt?
Or take a quick rest on Cassiopeia’s throne?
Look up at the stars my sweet child,
And learn that you are never alone.
Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt was to write a children’s nursery rhyme.
She skips perfectly along the gravel drive,
This beautiful spark of purity and life.
A true and full smile that radiates everywhere,
Not a hint of any worry or strife.
A perfect mess of loud colour and bold confidence,
This gentle piece of me finding her own sense,
In a time and place that seems too big,
It’s her moment without pretence.
Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt was to try writing a ruba’i, or a rubaiyat.
