and tea


feeling content

baby sleeping as I read journals

soon off to teach.

between classes will write

e-mail, browse crochet patterns,

eat leftover rice, fish, lentils


this afternoon, come home early

and play with baby, or maybe write


this evening, Kevin makes dinner

we watch tv snuggled on the couch

with Ellie; Kavi plays on the carpet

at our feet, periodically bringing us

books to read her, puzzles to assemble


tomorrow I work from home and hope

for lots of writing and/or crocheting

and off and on baby playing


sometime soon, I’ll write another poem

or make a sock

right now, yesterday’s baked scones

are waiting.  and tea.
