end of summer

The last days of summer….

My children fill the house with a last minute

            r  u  s  h

of unstructured chaos. They stay up late giggling.

They raid the kitchen at midnight. And again at 3 am.

Microwaved popcorn appears in all my dreams, and

later clutters my morning breakfast routine. And

even though they make for rough mornings,

I love these nights.
