it's the little things (domestic)

 

birthday wishes

from friends and family

 

blueberry muffins

and chocolate cake on my birthday

 

the little belly i'm getting from blueberry muffins and chocolate cake

and other such delights

 

the furnace and pendleton wool throw that kept us warm last winter

and will this winter

 

the warm place marketa leaves in the bed

when she gets up

 

flannel nightgowns

and sheepy slippers on cold feet

  

the tea cup

warming my hands between words

 

the pink sky through the kitchen window

telling me it's morning

 

~

 

i'll open the window

some little thing will blow in

 

that's how pearls are formed

watch and wait
