What the Heart Wants

Elijah just learned how to open the window.

I think he thinks it was just a coincidence

(At least it seemed so the first few times).

He slid around, took a lot of small steps, and

kept his balance when the stops and turns seemed inconsiderate.

We were exiting the 210 freeway when it happened:

dream achieved on purpose.

The desire to stand up behind the glass and see the view from his tippy toes

ended with his face

smiles deep in the wind.
