Normal is relative

Haiku Friday

My whirlwind tour of
St. Louis is half over
I wish it wasn't!

Sitting next to my
sister - 10 years old and lives
across the country

Dad sits on the couch
sharing bits and pieces of
todays New York Times

Sun is out today
birds chirp outside the window
It feels so normal

But I know that in
two days, it's back to life as
it normally is

I know I will miss
them. Sometimes, I cry at the
airport after byes.

So for now, I sign
off - there are gardens and zoos,
butterflies to see

I always cry at the airport after goodbyes!!
