April 25, 2018

Today began
a cloudy morning,
I awoke to the sound
of my child. 
From his crib.

I spent that same morning
tending to old habits
and rushing late
to my mother's. 

I gifted her
a frame held
with pictures of our
beautiful family. 

The weather brightened
up just as our day was
coming to an end.
