Nothing Much
by Allison Harris

Nothing much just . . .
A burst of light on the horizon
A flash of blue light over in dusty sky
A lone stone being stroked by whipping waves
A triumphant blow of a golden horn
A speck of sand named "Harry" on the glittering banks
A sweet taste of peppermint tea
A whiff of old picture books
A muddy puddle knee high
A screech of chalk on a chalk board
An old homework assignment crumpled
A marshmallow squishing under feet
An old painting hanging crookedly
Nothing much at all
