the last day of January

another white sky
and blue seems a dream I had months ago
a hint of sky, yesterday
of blue beyond cloud

a flash of sunshine the other day startled me
I wanted to run out of the house
and hold my face to the sun
but there were clothes to put on
a baby to feed
and the clouds moved faster than I did

It is the final day of the River of Stones project. I came late to it, and didn't quite manage one every day. But, I tried, and I am learning that that is often enough, in this busy life of mother, wife, teacher.
