Monday Again

Monday arrives in a blanket of overcast
Everyone seems a little grumpy and short
I am annoyed with a certain young girl
(Probably because she is reflecting my own mood)

But I hold onto Sunday night...

The wide dinner plate moon
Filling the clouds with back-lit luminescence
The cold air in our lungs
The little girl sitting on the edge of the driver's window
Feet in her dad's lap
Singing hymns and laughing
As she spots owls and night jars with her brother
Who hangs out of the back seat window in like manner
Our tummies full of food shared in a small mud and wattle home
Our souls full of the goodness of friendship and the blessing
Of bridging cultures together
