HOME 3:50 PM


Afternoon is excitement, long awaited enthusiasm

My mom’s tender voice my dad’s blunt reassurance

The laughter of my two sisters (who care more than any)

A zero percent stress level, Soothing even to the most bitterness.

  The sound of the gravel as we pull into the driveway

The opening if that white steel door

To the happiness that would feel my heart in seconds


  Loveliness to the scent of moms clean house

I’d waited so intently to encounter.
