be here with me
the air has chilled. the grass in the front yard has turned back to green. the roses outside the window are in bloom. it's perfectly cloudy. magnetic fields is playing. the wind chime on the front porch is chirping. the baby is sleeping in his bouncer.
the dishes wait for me. as do the blankets on the bed, the weeds in the flower bed, the dust on the entertainment center, the bills, and the sirloin in the fridge.
we'll be having fagitas tonight.
and i'll have flowers from our yard in a vase on the kitchen table; the pink ones that just recently bloomed. i've been itching to get my hands on them.
i have plans and ideas and an overwhelming desire to have my sister here to carry them out with me.
like a herb garden. and a membership at the local rock climbing gym.
so how bout that ranch in northern california, twenty minutes to be here with me sounds good enough.
