Free and Easy

I’m at home right now with my
Grandson who
Is eighteen months old and
Alternatively ecstatic
And despondent

My wife watches him most days
But she and her sister took their mom
To the doctor

My grandson doesn’t seem surprised
That I’m here and he laughs
Every time I take a swig of my Coke Zero

He’s watching a videos while I write
I served him oatmeal, milk and a banana
We’ll go outside to play soon

I am a grandfather
A father
A husband
An employee
A professional
A writer, a blogger
A child

And he
Is the seed of an unknown tree
A beautiful plant
An entire garden

A secret, hidden garden

I get to walk beside

Before I die

But for now

Ten minutes are up
