little splotches of life, random splashes,
those small, stray moments of here and now

i take them,
arrange them,
blending this instant with that,

blurring them together
hazy daze, crazy days
till the colors run helter skelter

i step back,
taken aback
at the masterpiece before me

snaggletooths, piggyback rides,
balls, bunnies, noodle heads
brownies and airplanes up high

we look up
swept away-

at the monet of everyday
