RSVP

time
can’t keep marshmallows from sticking
in your hair
or the spruce's new blue from glowing
around the edges
or a summer rain from drizzling
out of the sun

it’s time to say yes

to the come here’s
and the follow me’s
of children

because Tuesday feels like next year
and every day is an eternity

time, at least,
keeps everything
from happening at once

time keeps everything from happening at once... I keep running across that. It seems hopeful in light of the hardship you and me and Jene and others have run into this year. I am sending you love and an offer of raw food recipes if you want them, and anticipation of many hugs to come... and if we can watch the boys anytime, let me know.

Thank you for all you have done, do and will yet accomplish. and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Love you.
