Oh, Honey

For this week’s 100 Word Challenge, we got the word honey. Here is my offering, and be sure to stop by Thin Spiral Notebook to see other great responses!


Silence reigns in deadly glory
where noise should be
Then a soft giggle
a slight clatter.
Breathing easier.
Resuming activities
when the laughter comes again
and the clatter grows louder.
Curiosity burns.
Finish work and go to check.
Innocence peers back
amidst the piled flotsam
of a sweet childhood.
Little eyes blink
waiting for a response
as toys topple once more
adding to the chaos.
A little mouth curls up
between adorable dimples,
a giggle escapes again.
Little fingers
dig in the mess
looking for one
beloved toy.
“Hi Mommy!”
I shake my head
and smile.
Oh, honey.
