Wormhole Tanka

three-year-old me
lying on my stomach
in the garden
mother's shrub roses, a wormhole
to another world 

FYI: "A wormhole is like a tunnel between two distant points in our universe that cuts the travel time from one point to the other. Instead of traveling for many millions of years from one galaxy to another, under the right conditions one could theoretically use a wormhole to cut the travel time down to hours or minutes.'
