One thousand gifts and still counting (5339-5356)

blacktop on the driveway
some mild days before the next storm

the vanilla and almond bread
good books
boxes in the mail
half-off sale
things coming together

and a Marshall's-mom-like vision
stain and boards
frozen yogurt out with the family
clean water to drink
wood stacked in the garage for the week

times to hunker down
images of deja vu
thoughts, again, and wrestle
my husband and family
this life

ashes, and the beauty brought from them
