main street morning

oh, only a few of these left
before preschool starts…
we had abby with us
which only made things brighter

with two bank stops
and meeting sara and ben for coffee,
the girls had
a sucker
smarties
chocolate milk
and chips
all before 9:45 in the morn.

sorry again, jen.

but the joy of walking slowly
down main street
secure and settled
money in pockets
bellies full
a library close
a car with gas
windows safe to peek in
eyes to see with
candy for free
children who can walk
the option to ride

i do know
the luxuries
of this life and my mind
wonders why not everyone has them

  2. Greta was asking for every piece of candy in the checkout line, and I just had the patience to say, “No, it’s not good for your body.” Later I heard her used these exact words to tell Mali about it. Mali said, “yeah, it will make you homesick. Really really homesick.” Hmmm.
