Afternoon Mothering

An errant knight,

I mount my faithful steed

post tea-time,

charge through bramble weed

to rescue my fair children from their learning

together, we race past Lochness-shaped lake,

pause to let pass three ducklings,

then swiftly canter

below the ever-changing canopy

to vanquish all melancholy.

Our smiles, the swords we brandish

on our noble quest to be ourselves

in the land of aphantasia and uniformity.

    1. Thank you, John. Yes, we are enjoying our new e-bike. It’s a RadWagon. The hill help is great and also the ability to go farther with both my littles in tow. They are huge fans of what they are calling our “horse.”
