My Abundance

Fifteen years, you, me
Falling, fusing, finding us
Oh, my abundance!

Two, then three, now five
Crafting, crawling, bawling, sigh
Oh, my abundance!


We had chosen the topic of abundance to write our poems on, and my family was at the forefront of my thoughts that day. First I reflected on the abundance of my relationship with Katie, and all that we’ve done and become together. Then I couldn’t help but chuckle as I thought not only about the spiritual and emotional abundance of our children, but also about the literal bounty that is F·I·V·E kids!
