There is nothing so beautiful
as Ariana's smile
and the gentle, excited, gleeful way
she gives little kisses,
her eyebrows raised and
eyes wide.

There is an excited spark,
a ticklish discovery
with each new day.
She is risk-taking and trail-blazing -
a whirlwind of explosive energy
equal parts tsunami and supernova.

Every day is new... she is
my poochy-belly pumpkin,
my coffee bean,
my sweet face, scruncy nose
all and every angel.
My joy, my challenge, my daughter.
