autumn saturday

Posted: October 12, 2013 in Uncategorized

sleeping in
off the normal routines
boxed cereal for breakfast
extra giggles
extra snuggles
fall sunlight on falling cornstalks
delicious chill on the breeze
back roads and old stories
miles ahead, miles behind
with no clock keeping account
pedaling beside the river
the changing leaves are live art
we charge down hills with a whoop
children again
finishing the day with
ice cream in a paper bag
hustling home to savor it
and wish that every day
was an autumn saturday
