I have never…
I’ve never been swept away in rapids,
but I have swam in a lazy river.
I’ve never heard a dinosaur,
but I have seen my little sister have a terrible tantrum.
I’ve never flown with birds,
but I have been whirled around in the air by my dad.
I’ve never written an award winning novel,
but I have made up a story for my sister in her scarlet bed.
I’ve never seen a constellation,
but I have seen the flickers of light in my sister’s sequin dress, like a midnight sky lit up by fireflies.
I’ve never touched or seen a ruby,
but I have seen juicy red tomatoes glistening in the sun.
I’ve never gone deep sea diving,
but I have been drowned by toys.
I’ve never eaten the most delicious pizza ever created,
but I have eaten al parco pizza.
I’ve never climbed everest to go sledding,
but I have hiked up kite hill and wizzed down it again on a sled,
Into a tree and through some people.
