“Mama, why can’t we see kisses?”

“I don’t know, what should they look like?”


It was just an elevator ride. A stolen moment. A stolen kiss–several actually. Stand-up cuddles between picking her up, racing the streets, and dropping her at rehearsal. I couldn’t resist. Her toothless smile so sweet!

There was victory in arriving with time to spare, and a long road of rehearsal, traffic, the evening’s activities ahead.

Needed a moment

A kiss.

And when I kissed her, she burst with wonder. Sweetness! Dreamy-curiosity. I wanted to catch it–the moment & the dream therein.

Why can’t you see kisses?

I’ve given it thought, now:

Because our eyes aren’t wide enough to see love.

You have to feel it!

    Oooh, so tender and VERY poetic. I liked your rejoinder question, “What should they look like?” Thanks for letting us feel that moment in the elevator.
