Wonder

last seat

of a long, crowded bus,

trying to make sense of

tall trees

irregular clouds

pacing, colorful cars;

stirring stories

against the wind

with my tiny hand

outside the window,

feet hanging in the air

waiting

to reach the floor.

as they finally touch the ground today,

my hands search my pockets

yearning for some leftover wonder,

trying to make sense

of my own stories

hidden

across distressed forehead lines.
