In It

This morning I awoke to the drumming of tiny arms
and legs in my body

at 8:42

The thermostat read 58 degrees , quickly remedied
and as I puttered about quietly I heard the
healthy hum and whir of the furnace
making cozy

Coffee woke the man I love
Cat food can opening brought in the furry one I spoil
and I chuckled to myself
as he whirled and mewed at my feet,
full of spark and life.

We all assembled in the kitchen
over steel-cut oatmeal with cranberries and walnuts

Janey got her dose of love

Jones got his pill, his shot and as many pets as he would suffer
after such abuse

And our son rolled happily all through it,
stoking the ever-growing wish to meet him
and see that sweet face:

we're so excited hold him!

This weekend it is my wish for you
that your cup steameth
and overfloweth
with goodness
and abundance:

we send our regards out into the world
with love.
