dear remi

you are made
of the DNA of
love––

you are a sister
of every creature that
ever lived on this
planet––

amoebas & trilobites,
cephalopods & butterflies

for you
the earth spins
& the moon twirls––
& plants make
oxygen complements
of the sun

your parents
& all of us
yearn to watch
you grow

we humans
are beings of
light

miracles of
photons & matter––
married together
by the intelligence
of love

the big people
may think
you’re rolling around
in a crib

when you’re actually
painting paradise
on the walls
inside––

pure sounds & happy
colors––
sweet animals & smiling
friends

you are building
the castle of remi,
tending the fields of remi,
sculpting the mountains of remi,
exploring the oceans of remi,
dreaming the skies––

with a remi heart
right at the center
to share

you filled your
cuddly sheep with
love
& she loves you
in return

you love-twins
send your love
to all
the animals,
the trees &
the grasses,
the clouds &
the infinite
stars––

everything
blossoms with
joy

let your life be
inspired by
love––

& may your heart
grow big enough
to embrace
this whole wide
world
