with the pitter patter

of rain,
the soft breeze of an open window in fall,
the gray light of a cloudy day,
I want to stay right here in bed with you.

piles of pillows...

piles of achey bones.
piles of to do lists.
piles of laundry that I need to fold from Saturday.
piles of cat hair that sheds constantly.
piles of dirty dishes.


a pile of love.

autumn light...

the beauty,
and softness
of autumn light
makes me want to stay in bed


with you.

my favorite moment in the day...

is waking up and looking at you...
and knowing you are who loves me back.

so tired...

yawn, I am so tired I can't even see my feet...
Having house guests and having work for 4 days this week, though fun, has been exhausting.
I am hoping this weekend will be without much plans or anything just so we get caught up for our life...yawn, again

another night, another morning, another day.
life circles...
and I circle with you.

bad night.

bad night.
bad dreams.
sometimes it is really hard being married.
today it is very hard being married to you.

tossing and turning

all night. I slept poorly and had a terrible time getting to sleep.
Was it a full moon?
You did too as you got up and moved to the couch for awhile...

the other side...

I get up out of bed, walk out of the room, and by the time I come back you have rolled right into the spot I was sleeping. So I document your side instead.
I realized today that the fact that you do this, almost every morning, is a subtle expression of love for me or my warmth...
and now it will make smile.

wind chime alarm bell.

The last few mornings I have been waking up to the sound of our chimes.
I know that our neighbors might hate us for having so many but...
I love the moments in the year when you wake up to the wind chime alarm clock.
It means your windows are open and change is on the way.
And the coming months just happen to be my favorite time of year.

a wonderful thing...

to wake up with; is you.

Friday, September 5, 2008

wish I could...

stay in bed all day curled up with you...
but no.

Is one of the hardest things to find.
Balance in our schedule.
Balance in our day.
Balance in our life.
Balance in our bodies.

Still seeking balance today.

change is happening in our routine... with my new job I am moving around much earlier and you are grumbling in bed about it....
change is going to happen and one of them needs to be clean sheets!

sunlight poured in...

and tickled my skin.
I awoke with heaviness as you continued to sleep deeply.
