A Little Inspiration

At breakfast, my children point out
how the shadow of my lips falls perfectly
on the vase full of white cherry blossoms

and how, by moving them in an exaggerated fashion
to the words of their favorite song
which happens to be playing,

they are inspired to release peals of laughter
all over their scrambled eggs with cheese, which is
of course their secret way of saying

that they do not need for me to tell them
that today is going to be
better.
