Give us This Day

⁣Today was flowers and wind.⁣⁣
⁣⁣It was gray sky and fighting over legos and laundry.⁣⁣
⁣⁣Today was empty ⁣⁣
⁣⁣and it was abundant. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣We said⁣⁣
⁣⁣I’m sorry.⁣⁣

⁣I asked⁣
⁣how long?⁣
⁣⁣We remembered⁣⁣ ourselves
⁣when the sun came back out.⁣
⁣⁣Today was 2.23 miles ⁣
⁣and it was not enough.⁣⁣
⁣⁣Today was squishing onto this spider swing and smiling for the camera before the afternoon slipped away.
