The hair on my sister’s head.
The special spool of mom’s thread.
The color of my winter sled.
The sunrise on the eastern edge.
The flowers on my backyard hedge.
The tabby sitting on the ledge.
The fireflies’ lovely, blinking glow.
The polish on my painted toe.
The sun peeking through my window.
The most delicious jelly bean.
The clothes in my washing machine.
The cover of my magazine.
The endless sky I always knew.
The shirt I love but just outgrew.
The shower’s blueberry shampoo.
The grape juice in my glass half-full.
The wagon that I loved to pull.
The brand new unsharpened pencil.
