Graceful Mess

Graceful Mess
A structured chaos
The stormy calm
A salty pancake
A silent psalm
15 “Mama Kate”s, but I’m just one
Lucia’s on timeout; Benny calls me “Mom”
A maddened clarity
The cooling heat
A muted melody
A loud retreat
Ayanda tells me I need a vacation
Melissa asks me not to stay away again

A forgiving thunder
The morning moon
A beautiful weed
A midnight noon
Staying up late to talk with Sibussa who can’t sleep
Stories so heavy, it makes me want to weep
A consistent surprise
A moving rest
A frustrating delight
A graceful mess
Tucking them in bed and kisses for goodnight
Prayers together remind me… what a wonderful life!
