   Tear-washed eyes glance

up at the faded picture:

curly blond hair in pig-tails,

wide toothpaste commercial smile,

big blue eyes -

full of innocence,

full of wonder;

wonder about things

I now know - or think I know

and want - need to explore independently

I grab

my favorite stuffed animal

and leave for college.
