    i watch her as she grows
    and she gets restless
    her mind
    closes off the world
    of style as i know it
    she has an imagination
    that developed
    naturally within
    10 little fingers

    i see her smile
    and paint bright
    smiles on the faces
    of carnival clowns and
    pretty-n-pink kittens
    purple snails and green
    puppy dog tails
    when she is finished
    she turns the page
    to yet another
    picture and selects
    the photo of
    yet another
    to draw upon

    she still loves
    art -- the kind
    that doesn't seem
    to matter much to
    any grown folk...
    to her any scribble
    or sets of decorative
    lines made by
    simple stix of colored
    wax can hold
    her attention
    for more than an
    hour at a time

    all that matters

    to me is that she likes it
