For Joel on your 30th Birthday

In the stillness, in the quiet moments
when the noise and madness of the world
cease to exist...
or even matter...
I close my eyes and head on back.

Without packing a bag
or saying goodbye ...
back I travel
through the years,
the smiles,
the tears.

Back to the immeasurable joy
of newborn fingers...tightly curled..

...around my heart.

Back...back to happily ever after
and childhood laughter
with brown-crayon scribbled art.
