Testimony, in pieces

The vast blue sky
And golden rays
Turtle dove songs outside my window
The smell of freshly washed hair
My daughter's soft skin
Brown eyes

A roof that hasn't leaked
A painted picture of the sea
The taste of beans and chile
Clanging heater vents, alive with warm air
Rosy, heart-shaped lips

The ocean pulsing on the sand
White snow laid freshly down
Skeleton arms of trees
Dogs barking over the cat's meow
A quilt made of favorite shirts
And dreams.
