When she dreams

Photos by Rob Hanson for One Shoot Sunday

when she sees white cranes
frolicking in the marsh,
she dreams of flying,
white feathers flapping
 in the air over the  lake
at sunset .

when she sees her grandfather
 making boots,
she dreams of all the places
those fairy-dusted boots will go,
an Asian temple,
an African Jungle,
a Caribbean beach...

when she sees her own reflection,
she dreams of  the life ahead of her,
and prays that her fairy- dusted,
boot-covered feet
will fly her to a place
 where the life she lives
is the life she dreams of.
