Daily Prompt: Heroic

Five meant

Mark was still alive and barely grown,

Just 17

A musical feast…

A traveling wonder to one so young as I

Just a little sister

Who adored the hero man/boy who

Taught me to color inside and outside the lines and yell, loud.

And spun me about by the arms and legs, faster, FASTER, FASTER

Until mother would emerge at the back door, yelling, ‘you’ll dislocate her arms…”

I am still five, at the heart of it.

You are still my hero.
