sunlight on pumpkins
late afternoon sunlight graces the dining room
I love the time change.
I love the late afternoon sunlight
it reminds me of the school bus dropping my children off from school.
They would take off their sweaters and tiny blue sneakers
I would start dinner while they had a snack
the sun would set while we ate at the kitchen table
I love the idea of having everyone closing in as the day ends
all your loved ones gathered at close of day.
Splintered sunlight streaming through the windows
and lighting on the pumpkins.
