Slice of Life — Just Words

Early
Dim light
Cold floor
Quiet
Hot shower
Apricot shampoo
Or is that peach?
Squirming, snoring from the other room
Then awake
Ready to go
To play
To eat
To drink
To read
To pretend the dining room
Is a fire station.
Daycare
Work
Meetings
The body in a conference room
The mind: elsewhere.
Dinner with Nyonyo and Papa
Comfort
Food
Warm bath
Wiggly, wet baby
Soft PJ’s
The one with the snowmen.
Soft, searching fingers in my hair
Milk-breath
Kisses
One more story
Hugs
A lullaby about a fairy.
Sleep.
Love.
Sleep.

  1. I love the part about your body being in the conference room, but your mind being elsewhere. It is true and somehow you made it precious, not irresponsible 🙂 I especially enjoy the little details, like the lullaby about the fairy.
