i want to tell you…it was good

500strawberries

what i want to tell you
is how good today was
with my hands covered in paint
and my husbands’ covered as well
and the shed looking like new
and the kids’ hands digging into the earth
arranging stones
transplanting mint
that wafted to my nose
as i stood high on ladder rungs
and then droplets fell from the grey sky
and we moved indoors
for strawberries, sandwiches, soup
which warmed chilled bones and bellies
and we laughed
and we were full
and it was good

 

:: written the other day, but still floating in my heart ::

sending a little love your way, m
