The peak on tiny waves
Deep green over yellow
Dark fish darting
The scent of rich water
Time to watch
The life I crave
Work, bills, sleep, stress
Today’s poem of the day was in response to WordPress’s own Daily Prompt which was “normal”.
It was kind of apt as well as we have had a pretty normal day today. Not normal in the sense of the same as every other day but normal as in what we would like to have more often. The kind of normal that is actually very rare.
It consisted of not having to be anywhere or have any timetable. We spend the day together at home. Playing and relaxing. Had a nice roast chicken dinner and enjoyed the day. Alexander was very well behaved.
I had time to do some writing and some reading. All in all a perfect day.
We decided to try and have a slow relaxed and easy day today as far as is possible with a four year old.
We needed supplies for the fish tank so popped to a garden centre to get some bits and had a quick bite to eat there.
Then we went to the SANDS baby memorial garden as Lucas’ stone has now been laid. It is a very lovely and peaceful place of reflection. Looking forward to the official opening in July. The garden is somehow a more positive place than the graveside – but I think both are needed.
The rest of the day was then coming home and mowing the lawn. Alexander’s friend from next door came in for a while and played with his knights.
I then has the chance to get another poem done and try to sort out some of the photos from the weekend.
One plus was that my diagnosis of the latest problem we have seen at work turned out to be spot on once the hardware had been examined. Opens a whole new can of worms though.
