Big

The light from the sun has changed, just so slightly, from bright white to a softer gold

Signaling

The approach

Of Fall.

Soon,

My daughter

Will be

Back

In school,

But as a

New

Second grader.

No longer

Fresh

Out of

Kindergarten-

She’s on

The doorstep

Of womanhood

Now.

And I struggle

To Keep

Up

Behind her

As she moves

Into the distance

Of growing up.

She’s only

Seven

And yet worlds

Away

Already.

Seven seems so

Big

Now.

So big.
