Magical Monday 87

Posted on April 30th, 2012 in Stories




between Monday and Friday,

glimmering through the fingerprint-streaked windows,

Over a pile of laundry that scrapes the ceiling fan,

There’s a tiny light.

And sometimes, 

after dinner is served,

And baths are drawn,

Books are read and kisses blown,

a tiny light dances outside the patio door.


work is left in the briefcase,

the Blackberry is turned off 

And the dishes placed in the sink for another day.

For sometimes,

it’s time

to play.

Stay tuned, Invisible Friends! We have a new fun post mañana!
