Ordering Joy

The barista smiles

as I order

“Hot chocolate please

and hold the hot chocolate,

extra whipped cream

and sprinkles”.

A “drink” for a five year old,

unspillable in the car.

Coloring outside the lines.

Asking for dessert first,

asking for what you really want.

Asking for what will

bring you joy.

I wish we could

all so easily order

what brings us joy.
