making puddles

Day 229

Revel and I made puddles in the yard this morning

with water from the hose

and stomped in them until

our feet were covered in mud

and we left tracks on the gray slate walkway.

We watched a large and angry crow scold the cat as she rolled in the grass.

Then I followed Revel,

following his Daddy


both of them


Wil for real

and Rev, pretending, serious with his plastic red and yellow lawnmower

faded from sitting in the sun.

Later we wandered up the lane.

Rev waved at the doves, blew them kisses

and walked with a purpose.

Arms swinging and

curls shining in the

last warm rays of sun.

Thank you for listening,
