like pressed garlic
creamy crushed
husk blown away,
i held her
forgetting the argument,
forgiveness and
playing with that
blonde hair
thinking of tomorrow

    ha, like crushed garlic….great opening and you know some things you just have to let go…and playing with the hair is much more important than those other things…

    the pressed garlic image made me smile…good to hold them….good to forgive and thinking of tomorrow…they grow up so quickly..

    Excellent metaphor: “like pressed garlic creamy crushed husk blown away”

    The tender insides, almost liquid brokenness, mush. And the way you held her. I love this.
