Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

without a clear plan
for how to spend
his post-adrenaline
Sunday afternoon 
he wound his way 
through wide circles
puttering on
minutes
becoming hours

laughed over lunch
with good friends
came home to prep 
a simple dinner
marinated meat
cleaned up the mess
built a dessert
seasoned some veg
cleaned some more
lit the coals
cooked on two grills
whilst intermittently
cleaning a third
scrubbing
sanding
polishing 
while the smoke 
rose up

with bellies full
his kids
rode bikes
smiles pushing
warm air
underneath 
a wide sunset
