What was that? by Rebecca Kai Dotlich        

What was that

that made me blink?

Made me wonder,

made me think?

Turned me inside

upside down

under, over

all around?

What was that

that I just heard?

A treasured tale,

a magic word?

A breathless thought

Inside my head -

What was that

that I just read?
