Tuesday’s Day Poem

(this was inspired by emptying my suitcase this morning after spending the long weekend in Santa Cruz with our kids and their families, celebrating our fortieth wedding anniversary)

Here is what I unpack from my suitcase:

Sandcastles on the beach

Conversations with my children as the sky grows pink then

Inky black

With candleglow to light our trips down memory lane

A game of Go Fish with Eli and Audrey

Girl Party in the back seat with Esme

A frosted slice of anniversary cake

Orange as the morning sky

Sweet as this forty year trip together.
