A tiny flower, a gentle heart.
His muddy hand carefully cradles
the delicate lace of purple petals.
My youngest son's eyes eagerly await
the smile that curls my lips.
I  whisper "thank you" to the Universe:
for him and his joyous offering.

Trying to make sense of how

time has slipped through my fingers.

My boys stand at different thresholds,

ready to begin writing new chapters.

I witness; my proud heart photographs.

At the end of the day,

after homework, dinner and baths;

the battle begins; a hopeless dance.

Be productive in relative peace, quiet?

Drop everything , grab the neglected book ?

Run to undo the days dietary mistakes?

Or succumb to the inviting softness

of the freshly made, warm bed...

In hopes of a productive tomorrow

when I can read or run;

not surrender too quickly or soundly

as the white sheets beckon me tonight.

Waving the white flag?  Visit Melissa and find out more about Six Words Fridays!
