(Susan Seddon Boulet)
A knock on the door jarred me from my
afternoon snooze, I open it only to find
the tiniest of souls once called a dandelion,
now called a wish upon a star. She spoke softly
and I had to lift her to my ear to hear her say,
“May I borrow a cup of milk?”
“My universe ran out and I’ve landed at your
door to find some more.”
“I can repay you in kind or kindness,
whichever you like.” To this I replied
dear seedling star soul, I will give
you what you ask if you take me with you
on your journey home, I’d love to see your world.
The seedling star soul agreed and off we went to a
milkless world. Beauty stunned me and all seemed
to float on end before setting down again. I spent
the afternoon into the late night before the seedling
told me I had to go home or I’d be lost there, I weighed
my options and decided to float some more, I wouldn’t
miss milk all that much.

Inspired by the phrase “May I borrow some milk?” Whimsy and folly will follow.
