Today’s Mama:::Time Together, From Santa

I daydreamed about time alone for the better part of this year.
I yearned for an escape more tranquil, more nourishing than daily diaper folding.
I’d look up from a sink full of dishes and wish:
take me on piano keys.
September scribbled schedules,
left us pulled in different directions.
darkness came early on full plates
left us dancing
a rad routine
a bit off beat.
Sometimes, we would
slow it down
tune the piano
compose a simpler piece,
for life.
This Christmas,
Santa delivered
Olive her coveted tube of tiny domestic cats
and a little secret getaway
with a map, a walk
and the most perfectly simple
night for play
with a message of just how to carve out our days
in the brilliant year to come.
