Commonplace, or One for the Ages

I wonder if ages away
I’ll yearn for this commonplace day—
the day of to-do-lists undone
the day long forgotten, long gone—
the day I spent watching the sky
and clouds that kept drifting as I
would sway in the hammock and you
would strum a tune “I lava you,”
play fetch with our pup with a toy…
The day you were still just a boy.

Live for the Love of it,

Sasha A. Palmer (aka Happy)
