Snapshot of Love

Batman pajamas wiggle by the kitchen table
with a handful of cards for a hot Go-Fish game
An hour after noon, and there’s really no hurry
“The List” is long enough
but not worth depleting our opportunities
to giggle and practice being a family
being a family in that way we hope for
Hugs have been plentiful
and simply enjoying the company of those we call
by a second name; Dad, Mom, Brother, Son
All windows open, edge-of-autumn breeze on our skin
seagulls call in the distance
over a small town, tree lined lake across the road
