Tender
A little girl 
grabbing 
at the waves 
in her father’s 
fingernails,
surfing her 
tiny hand 
into his,
becoming 
an ocean 
of twined fingers
that lap into his lap 
as her tiny brown eyes 
widen with wonder and asks:
“Daddy, where have
you been all my life.”

Have you ever noticed the waves in a fingernail? Yours or another.
