“Golden” #Repost


Silent behind 4 walls
sunrise, cool night breeze lingers in the window.
eventful day, schedule shows
first back & forth
silhouettes erode
breakfast, clean and launder clothes
buttery eggs
with toast on salty lips
days off
no face
no clock ticks
work indoors as the day glows
some skin exposed.
Turning transition clears turns, turns you to me…
we clean every which way
reflection cleaner to class the day
you’re in solid form
almost norm
fluff all the right places
just my height
just my taste
you know your just my shape
fruit salad your just my plate
wax, polish, spit shine
with a slow song written all over your face
the salad, green tart grapes
easy music listening
dishes sparkling, shotting gin on a lazy day
stirred not shaken
regular wash
hardly starched
don’t need you done up
just lightly dressed
sandals, panties, bra, worn flowered dress
not going anywhere so you can skip the rest
hints and quips
never speech
silent but understood
bending. sweeping. standing on feet.
I just stare…
everything else .. obsolete
smell of fresh clean laundry fills the air
kid searching… find them nowhere
just me & you
you & me
I & you
you & I…
lovely how the time…
…turtles… by
quick snack
20 minute adult nap
barter nick knacks
warm popsicle
for a hot snatch
then calibrate the rest of the day
just to relax.
sun floats down while the night falls
finally we drift silent behind 4 walls…

When I wrote this, I was in the middle of a mini vacation where it so happen that the wife and I were able to spend the day alone. Without the kids “enjoying ourselves”.

As Always…

Stay Positive!
