two children, one boy, one girl.
ten painted fingernails but
twenty unpainted toes. four
flip flops.

a million blades of grass, dozens
of unpicked dandelions dancing
in the wind.

one backpack, three extra shirts,
two little ponds, two pairs of hands

three splashes, five splashes, ten
and one big kick. a trillion
laughs, two butterflies.

under zero clouds and one big sun,

and endless blue sky.
