Washing and cleaning and walking. Mark Strand and Sean Hayes. Coffee, iced tea.
Conversation and laughter. A sprinkle of dissent between the kids. But moving on.
Card games, silly games. Friends. Bananas and apples and gouda cheese. Not together.
A morning sky that was blue, so blue. The afternoon sky clouding with grey, quiet grey. The trees filling out. The tulips popping forth. The grass freshly mown.
Later the wind blows, rain falls, twinkle lights switch on.
In the dark, there is a wash of yes and so much that’s good. An understanding that there needn’t be more. An embrace. An acknowledgement. Thank you and I’ll see you again soon.
