newest family addition lizzy

meet elizabeth, my new niece: the tiniest, most beautiful, and amazing thing I have experienced all summer. the way she looks at things when she opens her eyes... she's perfect. 

what the water wants is hurricanes
and sailboats to ride on its back.
what the water wants is sun kiss,
and land to run into and back.
I have a fish stone burning my elbow
reminding me to know that I'm glad
that I have a bottle filled with my own teeth.
they fell out like a tear in a bag.
and I have a sister somewhere in Detriot
she has black hair and small hands
and I have a kettledrum
I'll hit the earth with you
and I will crochet you a hat
And I have a red kite
I'll put you right in it
I'll show you the sky
