In the moment

Morning Moment

Trying to corral my thoughts,
like wild horses, though I may
look relaxed sitting here in my
comfy chair tapping on my laptop.
Justin sits to my left on his chair
with his knees up, one leg crossed
over his knee at the ankle. He’s
playing with one of his noisy toys,
singing a counting song, three pigs,
five ducks. Let’s count. Vanessa
sits at the table eating. I can see
her head peeking up from the back
of the wheelchair. Now Loren’s
shaving Justin, who’s trying to
smile while being shaved. Loren
sings along with the toy. Time to
brush teeth, Loren says. My cue.
