save a slice of summer

in the dream, it had become morning
sun was streaming in
the brightness everywhere –
the walls, the floors, your face
and you say
i feel better this morning,
the light, the daytime makes things seem ok, face-able, do-able

john and paul (10 and 12)
find me in my secret (not so secret, but out of the way) lunch spot
in between sniffles (thank goodness)
to deliver a brownie with too much chocolate chips
on evergreen’s last work day

georgie the cat
playing with a mouse (or vole)
when we come back to the pack shed
with crates full of zukes and cukes
_______

lisi cat (who has his own theme song)
deciding to choose my lap
instead of his pillow
to curl up on
(momentous)

_______

juniper slicing big tomatoes
while  i slice little ones
so we can save a slice of summer
for a chillier later date
