My wife is off on a weekend business trip and the house is strangely empty without her.
Spot in the Garage
The garage is especially large without your car.
The house is more silent.
Clara's voice rings just as loud,
but echoes a little
without your love and presence
absorbing it too.
The cats and chickens are fed and fine,
our daughter is full,
She is happy and singing
while making potions
of sand and dirt to feed the chickens.
I remembered to close the bedroom blinds last night,
but my feet travelled to your side of the bed
searching for your comforting presence,
missing it in the
The weekend chores will happen
but without your efficiency.
Which one will I be finishing Sunday,
as your car fills the spot in the garage?
