imagining the wildflowers of August

 

 

Back to work.
My omens arrive in my absence.
My son looks taller
If that is possible
He takes the bus by himself
My daughter has a new hair cut
She made her own appointment
My husband makes dinner
Couponing and meal planning like a pro
Deftly swooping in to cover my nights away
The dog got walked and fed.
Somehow I continue to feel surprised by what happens
Without me
But also pleased and impressed and curious…

Things blossom before you,
As you expend effort cultivating
And envisioning a certain development
Facing the fruit of your labors

But they also blossom behind you.
And sometimes that is even more exciting.
