File this under S

for Sublime:

standing under a tree canopy
blowing giant bubbles
with a toddler
caught up in the innocence of a pure experience

no apologies to you if this sounds cliche
try it; you might like it

eating every meal outside
watching squirrels
naming birds (and correctly IDing some species)
taking a break from you and you and you and you
(it’s not you, it’s me)

no apologies on this one either

remembering Memorial Day (nah, we’re not going polit on ya)
because last year this time
the rhodendrons were in full bloom
in the mountains
and I have photographs of us standing in front of those blossoms
and we were all smiles
as if to say, “Go ahead and try to steal this moment from us.”
