The song floated through the air
like the smell of fresh bread in the morning.
And she couldn’t help but smile,
as the memories spun around her like candy floss.
She got up and began to sway,
barefoot, light and free on the grass,
the melody lifted her into the darkening sky;
the notes, like fireflies; flew among the stars.
she closed her eyes,
the lyrics as warm as a lovers breath
lifting her to rise with them,
into the cool evening air.
