As ever, for Charlie and Cryssa. :)

Image (c) 2007, Karla Dorman

Daddy rolled his eyes when he
saw his little girl piling clouds
like potatoes on his plate.  Higher
and higher the towers went until
they touched Heaven's ceiling; the

tops spread out in anviled beauty
in the last light of sunset.  She had
always had a flair for the dramatic
--- she got that from her mother,
as well as her purple velvet eyes.

She hummed as she worked, a
study in concentration; she wanted
it to be perfect, since she ruined
Father's Day --- she still felt bad
about getting the car stuck in four

tornado holes.  She'd already
made pea soup and the meatloaf
was just about done.  Clouds would
be a wonderful side dish.  There!
Finished!  She turned around, and

there he was, tears running down
his face.  She never loved him more
than she did at that moment --- she
gave him a hug that lasted forever
and then said, "I'm starving, let's eat!"

Don't beat your little head against the wall and waste time, Daddy is sitting there waiting with a empty plate in front of him, so, keep busy and go eat!
A culinary kind of poetry I may say.

An ogre-ish daddy-daughter date. Love it! And it sounds very yummy too.

side note: that tornado thing really happened. It was me-- I always got stuck whenever I drove my daddy's truck. He was pretty careful when he let me drive. So once, I took him his lunch on a whim, but got all 4 wheels stuck in 4 different badger holes. We'd jack up one side, put big boulders under the tire and then move on to the next tire. And then--even then, we had to unhitch the tractor from the harrower to pull the puppy out... a wasted 3 hour lunch! Cryssa's tales are fun-- but they're usually at my expense... but I love her anyways... --Char-girl
