A Day in the Life

The morning light is beautiful. Busy insects are singing when they move around the many flowers. The kitten is eating fish. The children play and laugh in the garden; Steven is listening to them. Michael asks him (with love), “When will you take baby Anna to the dentist?”

“At noon. I’m afraid the colt may have eaten tainted grain; I’m feeding him only grass now. Might Farmer Mary be able to heal him? Afternoon would be good.”

California, the pregnant dog, is asleep; she is weary. The kitten jumps on top of the dog and then dances across the room. The family laughs.

Matthew is deep in thought about the dog. He asks, “When will California give birth?”

Steven thinks (with love), “What a young philosopher our son is,” but he says (didactically), “California will give birth when the time is right.”

Matthew laughs. He caresses his brown hair and said, “Maybe I’ll buy fruit from the store when you go to the dentist. I’ll meet you afterward.”

Michael says, “Well, would you get bread and milk also. I’ll give you money. We will celebrate in the evening because Magic Granny will arrive.”

Magic Granny arrives with the very colorful light of sunset. Her body hurt, but she felt peace. Her child(ren) and several grandchildren greet her with many hugs. The family eats their food on the harmonious farm after sunset. California gives birth to seven puppies at night.

Dreams of summer dance in Matthew’s head when he goes to sleep.
