And he wrapped all of his fingers around just one of mine

by brownybean

There lies a baby, naked and giggling in the grass.
A beautiful gray-eyed baby,
Naked in the grass.
In his hand, he holds a dandelion.
The plumage  shakes as his body bounces.
The wispy seeds make their soft descent.

There lies a baby, naked and giggling in the grass.
Though his eyes squint and his body shakes,
He does not break his gaze.
What is it that brings him such pleasure? 
Only when I stop and lie in the grass with him
Do I see it:

There is an oak sapling growing through a sidewalk crack.
