antici … pation

that feeling when
seven of the people
you love most in the world
rolled into town
just after

and you wake up early,
knowing they are
THIS close
to you and your home,
but also far from being
awake, and you want
to call them all
(even though
it’s 0430)

but instead
you sit and try
to read, knowing
the sun will rise
soon enough, and
not long behind it,
all those people
you can’t wait
to hug

    I can so relate! My son just returned after 7 months in Hawaii for a brief stay at home. He might need to sleep all day, and I can’t wait to hug him!!
    Enjoy your guests/love fest!

      Aaaaaah! I hope today is a blast, and full of hugs! ❤️

      (Almost three hours later, I’m having to frequently remind myself I can wait for them to text me that they’re awake. Heh.)

    You pore all your emotions in the poetry. Very Good

      Thanks! Mostly, with limited time and energy, bothering with proper grammar/formatting can be a big “no, thanks” for me. 🙂
