#Haikai Challenge #122: The Dream

Rainbow lollypops —
each one licked by a pink tongue –
small hands, many hues

Grandmothers rocking
watching their grandbabies play
long summer sunshine

My warm arm rests
next to your warm arm, at peace –
love is colorblind

Race checkbox erased
demographics refashioned
This dream can come true

Will the last humans
Still fuss about us and them?
Silly notion, eh?
