The Kids Are Home

a Milk Carton welcome

wife, kids are back
globe-trotting over —
at home they roam

no more lazy
lounging on sun deck
wine glass in hand

no more quiet
end-of-week mornings
in grown-up land

nooks and crannies
of peace, solitude,
empty no mo’

they fill up quick
with hugs and laughter,
love and Play-Doh


exploring the lighter, poignant side of MCHs
