order upon the universe

Izzy at 6

Izzy is six
and she loves to find and to express order:

legos fitting together just right,

eight plastic boats connected and floating,
and in rainbow order,

progressions of numbers tumble from her,
a fascination with cooking 
and how ingredients can combine 
and transform into muffins, a cake,

in her play her imagination creates 
wholenesses of characters and actions,
with people she feels the potential connections 
and acts on them.
