Eyes just closed.
Sweet words gently coaxing sleep.
sleepy latch released.
Toddler is as toddler does.
Fragile silence broken.
Playful teasing turned
Attach armour prepare for battle.
Attack, defend, cower.
A sexy sartorial selection.
A glance at a whining infant.
Clock hands not quite at bed time.
Dirty dishes, dirty laundry,
Isn't that one of the perks of marriage?
You remember when neither friend nor foe stood in the way.
A fragile mood,
Hinged on fragile hearts connecting
In the extended fragile silence late night
