The Fire In You - Poem by Ceri Naz

you come and show the skylight
to start the ABC's
and melodious one-two-three
your dandelion fingers
lighten up
mornings without sun

your sunglasses
winking console and clever pokes
as i hide
falling dripping
tears
from heaven's eyes

your songs
prompting rainbows
over the window pane
as i pain
for the crayons
fading emptying
colors
of my written wishes
because you're gone.

your fire tree
sending me fireflies
whistling trumpets
drumming my eardrums
tickling my heels to dance
i am returning the days
to fly the flight
of a paper
i scream: there you go!
please open it
albeit my scribbles
are wheezy and windy
: i love you dad:
