Watching Palm Trees Grow

A silhouette of a girl doing a back bend with the sun setting behind her over the ocean
Sunset at the beach in Oceanside, CA

Green chicken palm tree tiny and small

Trip over it on the way to grandmas

Cute sturdy palm tree 5 feet tall

Fronds create a house for play

Growing like weeds; the kids and the trees

Balls bounce as shadows paint the driveway

Tall enough now to sway in the breeze

as first kisses fall on that court

Fronds fifty feet high waved goodbye

Motor revved, kids rolled away

Trees grew tall as time passed by

We watched the palm trees grow
