Stretching Time out in such a way,
that several days share one sleep.
It’s very different from the frenzied packing-everything-in days.
I am grateful for yesterday – the day when we said farewell to my retiring doctor,
The day I spent knitting,
The day I spent teaching and grading papers,
The day I spent with loved ones.
Thank you, gentle day in October, for your gentle way with Time.
