Peaceful Play

She squats beside the water's edge, playing,
tadpoles and crawdads fleeing
from fat probing fingers.

Sunlight sparkles on the river ripples,
caressing a sun burnt face
and freckled pixie nose.

Contentment - a child at peace with nature,
living on the brink of joy
with sand between her toes.
