by Irwina Samara

Our first date


I gifted you a box of crayons

Red blue yellow green


And you gave me

cherry blossoms

Bashful pink

A Christmas cypress



The second gift

a paper plane


You sent back

A dole of doves

Flawless white

The breeze of spring

On Tulip fields


The third a blanket fortress


And you built me

A red brick home

With a blue front door

And a lifelong stack

Of children dreams
