Fixing Lunch

by amada

Bright sparkling laughter
jumbled from the next room
Lisa and Ed, sister, brother
are visiting home.

All grown up now
but with the twirl and wisp
of their younger years

Their childhood chuckle remains--
race cars, dolls, and lollipops.

I still can see the smudges
On their grubby funny faces.

Absent today but present in the rattle,
Dan and Jen,
the rest of the clamorous clan.

Chatter and giggles echoes
through the happy corridor.

Rainy winter day
but a slant of sun beats in my heart.

"Pizza ready, mom?" I hear....

And again,
I am the busy mom
searching for something
greater than myself...

Fixing lunch.
