Today Rather than Yesterday #parenting #poetry


birthday balloons

 

 

where do you find yourself

in the rabbit hole of yesterday

pulling yourself toward today

or rushing back grasping at the past

wishing wanting

its like water slipped through your fingertips

I can’t hold you back as I trip

I never really wanted to try

flying free on winds invigoratingly high

but there are nights

sober moments where I hear screeching tires so near

I want to place a warm bundle back in the crib

singing made up lullabies

and whisper to little elf-like ears

“I love you”

piglet and winnie

Today is the birthday of my youngest and I want to climb back to the rabbit hole of yesterday and hold her small hand.
