Summer Thighs

Originally posted April 3, 2008

Sitting on the couch

with boys

and a book

reading about shoes

on centipedes

Out of the corner

of my eye

I spied

a thigh

a roly-poly

baby thigh

calling to me

"Come squeeze."

I obliged


and said

"Oh how I’ve missed these little legs."

Winter steals

baby thighs

and hides

them under piles

of clothes

Summer is coming again

And bringing back

My baby’s skin

Do kids really need to wear clothes in the summer?

I really don't think they should.
