Hoodie Heart

Child:
Chilly,
I pulled on
your blue sweatshirt.
Zipped up, it fit well!
I wish I could capture
forever your reaction,
beaming at me, recognizing
yourself in grown-up me,
           your mother
beaming back at you,
           wishing this would last.

Late entry for Kerry’s Micro-Poetry prompt in The Garden.
