the three of us

coughing, honking, sniffling

like an orchestra

Ode to my In-laws:

too short a visit

there presence has me craving

Grand Central Station

.

As we know in the world of haiku, sometimes short is sweet. My in-laws were in New Hampshire for just two days and it was wonderful to see them. Penelope had a blast. Grandma and Penny danced around the house like butterflies. Grandpa cracked Penny up and had all of us giggling. And we all took a trip to the pool one day that included a swimming lesson for Penny from Grandma and finally, a trip to the Depot Station Ice Cream Parlor. And one of the flavors? Grand Central Station. I had to order this seeing as how 1. B and I used to live in New York 2. the in-laws are native New Yorkers and 3. New York tends to be a meeting ground for this side of my family. Grand Central Station ice cream? Yum!!! Caramel ice cream with chocolate rice crispies and tiny malt balls. So I am planning two trips: a trip back to the ice cream parlor and a bigger trip in November which will take us into the real Grand Central Station.

..

.

we sit and wait

watching soap and snow melt

against the windshield

.

suddenly it’s dusk

and yet it took forever

to get to this car

.

driving we see things

that aren’t ourselves –

windows lit soft orange

.

trees hang with white

so comfortably as if

they were penciled in

.

Finally people

surround us and we eat

tasting everything

.

Merry Christmas to You and Your Family in all it’s Infite Shapes and Forms!

Merry Christmas to You and Your Family!

when I was a girl

it was only minutes to

drive to Grandma’s house

.

now I have a girl –

planes, trains and automobiles

is the way it works

.

from Pennsylvania

now grandma’s in Florida

sister lives down south

.

we live out our dreams

up north in New Hampshire but

something is missing

.

still we are happy

to raise our girl amongst trees

ocean, farms and fields

.

Whatever form your

family takes I wish you

a Merry Christmas!
