Forgive unseen cuts
and hidden slights right away.

Yearning to travel–
familiar push-me pull-you

Drank too much last night.
A rare occurrence these days.
Slow-moving today.

can take a break from frantic

Blustery cool day.
It’s time for the gardening
(you can keep the heat).

Thunderstorms last night
brought Gwen into our bedroom
saying, “I can’t sleep!”
