My photo
Mother, writer and daydreamer. Also chocoholic and chick-flick lover. But mainly mommy. To two boys, at that! When not escorting my Elder One (EO) to karate class, I'm trying to get in as many cuddles as possible from my Younger One (YO). And when not doing either, I'm hard-at-work trying to maintain a steady relationship with my laptop. And as for the Man I Married (MIM), well, let’s just put it this way – even though we share a bedroom, our most meaningful conversations are held over the cell-phone!

Splash

I try to distance myself
as your fingers
make music
on my skin.
Instead,
I squiggle
and squeal
to the chaos
of its’ tune.

I try to dive
through your eyes
and come out unwet.
Instead,
I drench myself
in your smile
and splash about.

I try to imagine
my days
and nights
minus you.
Instead,
you travel through me
like a lingering dream.

Please
let me sleep.
And if I’m awake,
then don’t ever tell me.
