long day is ending
many things are left undone
but i go to bed


freezing speckled fish
just named by the two year old
you can’t leave us now

floating upside down
surprise! warm water revives
now we move the tank

it hovers around
an intangible presence
something left undone

a sweet baby sleeps
nestled in his mother’s arms
a moment of peace

just as we approach
the cliffs of insanity
you succumb to sleep

sort, wash, dry, fold, stash
surprisingly rewarding
order is restored

up before the sun
toddler seeks her parents’ bed
sleep eludes us all

hoping for snow day
hot chocolate by the fire
sweet family time

nobody expects
tupperware micturation
gotta love your mom

in a busy day
reality diverges
from best intention
