Sleeping in with snuggles

Is summer vacation.

Sweet cuddles close and comfortable

Speak to the priceless fruit of my vocation.


Motherhood can be challenging,

Exhausting, too.

Yet the bonds are immensely rewarding

Reaching into the depths of my being.


Precious tender moments together

Savored in uncomplicated ways

Natural for child and mother

More powerful when another stays.


Closeness in the quiet

Of an unopened day

Feels safe and protected

Pure and true as it may.


Giving into needed sleep and rest

Has allowed space

To enjoy what is very best.

Loving without wanting or race.


“To be or not to be.

That is the question.”

The answer is most clear to me,

For it is in the being that we receive.
