July Choices 31

Choosing to follow expectations of your arrival
We made plans… of grandparents coming to help
But you thwarted them – no malice intended at all…
Two weeks early, bringing only joy and love with your life –
Our youngest has a birthday today

July Choices 30

It has rarely been my choice to recognize my own senescence
With a particular calendar count of chronologically recorded passes
And yet just recently I’ve noticed a few more changes that only come with aging
White and silver hair, extra ages spots, and reactions that hadn’t happened before
The mysterious swells of some irritation, a bug bite, or food consumption – to the
Chemical rearrangement that is slowly changing what was to who is now me

July Choices 29

Was it really his choice
To arrive two weeks late?
Perhaps not, but it has allowed us to tease him…
That he’s never been and most likely will not be on time
For anything….(our first) birthday boy

July choices 28

Vacation places differ from home spaces
Once home again I can choose after a long travel day to sleep in…
Then comes the task to choose what to unpack first –
After the fog leaves the brain, the turtles have been fed and
the tomato and pepper plants enjoy a morning drink…just what is next?

July Choices 27

Sometimes we have to choose to look the other way
When the ones we love make choices we don’t agree with
We all traveled similar roads to get to this latest moment
And the mistakes are part of the process…
The next generation has to experience some difficulties…or do they?

July Choices 26

Floating in the ocean
I didn’t choose to go out farther than I should…
Drifting under clouded sky buoyed by salted waves ebbing enchantedly –
Up to view how far I’d drifted in mere moments of distracted-ness
Just a few swim strokes towards the shore and my feet touch sand safely…

July Choices 25

Choosing to stroll the boardwalk last night…We got two light shows…
Heat lightning over the inky Atlantic ocean and
The hotels, shop fronts and the giant Ferris wheel with gondolas
Son of son told us all of the colors; red, blue, purple, pink, green and yellow
