a perfect day

for a picnic!


today we met in the glorious shade of grey gums,
with the sunlight dappled through,
we rode bikes,
ran barefoot,
supped on homemade treats,
talked and laughed and reminisced,
and what a gift
to have my mama, my stepdad
my dad, my stepmum,
my ma-in-law and my pappa-in-law
all there
loving us,
(our friends too)

we feel so full of blessing
we may just explode...
and though it pains my insides
to know I'll be so far from them
in flesh,
I know our hearts are ever close.
