Moonlight and Water

Many moonlit nights ago

At another park

By another pond

Under different trees

Watching dusk unfold

I had been seated

Between my parents.

Deeper than the shade of those trees

Was the cool comfort

Of their loving grace

I was a little girl

The world was large and wonderful

And in the care of the two peepals

I was safe.
