We stayed at my sister’s house up in the Skagit over the weekend and it was great to get out of the city and relax. Jack and I did our reading together, he, Charlotte’s Web and me, Love 2.0.
In the morning Jack sat on the couch with his legs up and book perched on his lap and I sat in the window nook, wrapped in a blanket, occasionally gazing out on a gorgeous day heating up.
He eventually drifted over to me so we were two in the nook, cozy and calm. Two haikus came out of this weekend.
Pictures of seashells
cedars on blue sky outside.
Settle, breathe, relay.
Fingers race through counts
as we tally up things. Shift.
The heart’s breath steadies.
