squiggles


“Can you read my squiggle lines?
I wrote them just for you.”   –Luke

I love you mommy!
I hope you love me too…
“Can you read my squiggle lines?
I wrote them just for you.”
I head off to bed, just as you ask
dreaming of adventures
make-believe lands -once thought impossible
alive and well again.

Monsters have boundaries -mommy
they scare me just the same
whether under my bed,
in my closet or resting in my head.
They told me to tell you
they forgot to pay the rent
but they have been on their best behavior
so I gave them my consent.

We storm around the house -do mischief
the words come pouring out
a molten lava island
where imaginations run wild.
I lead them through doorways,
we crawl through the cracks
no reason to shudder -we promise
to come back.

I love you, dear mommy…
I do and I hope you love me too!

If I could write music, Luke’s monster travels would sound something like this.
