Four Generations

Four Generations – with my son and father… Grandson, Sean, is one yrs old.

Little treasures come to visit,
Four and two and one.
Energy abounding constant,
Forts to build, such fun!

Max had to wear my jacket to walk the dogs early in the morning.  His clothes were in the bedroom with his sister, still sleeping.

Dyeing colored eggs for Easter
Yello, red, and brown.
Baskets full of candied chocolate,
Hunting all around.

Weekend over rapidly,
All packed up and gone.
Quiet house is deafening,
Sadness lingers on.

Back to former work and life,
Routine settles in.
Cleaning up the odds and ends, but
Remnants found within.

Where’s the doorstop to our room?
Clay smushed on the floor.
Happy memories abound,
Smiling evermore…

Yours in aging with class,
Jane
