March 26 Alone Time

I’m writing every day of March for the Slice of Life Challenge at Two Writing Teachers

The boys are home
spread out
doing their own thing

I’m home too
curled up
doing mine

I could have
this space
this quiet
this alone time
when they were young

I could have never
imagined it

  1. Oh, I know *exactly* what you mean. I used to dream about the idea of them sleeping in – and now they sleep so much! My teen, once a gregarious little boy, sometimes grunts at me as he passes. (I exaggerate, of course, but it can feel that way.) I’m grateful for the quiet, but also… I never could have imagined it.

  2. The repetition of how you could never have imagined this is powerful. Your poem conveys such a lovely sense of calm and contentment, and wonder at how things have changed.
