Planning lessons for September relaxes me. Knowing this isn’t a charade. A settled feeling to begin the summer.
Just because you were away
things did not change.
As we grow older
it is not less of a family
Togetherness is not always easy.
tender feelings, hard hearts.
No one clattered on the drums this weekend,
the sounds that rattle me, push me outside
to take a breath.
I love you like the day you were born,
like the day you clutched my neck,
like the day I first laid eyes on you.
Some days are easier with space between us all,
But day is not a day without you.
And don’t you forget it.

*writing along with the Write Alm prompts today.
This weekend a few of the scales fell from my eyes.
