spinning in the desert,
running in circles
mixed with rain.
Must be happy,
back and forth.

Those last four liners:perfect!
Bouncing with life and energy, glad to be alive. You bring her to life on the page.

Ethel, I really enjoyed this – it’s profound and charming, sweet and powerful. Made me both smile (at the imagery) and then contemplate its truth and wisdom!
