You are mostly now just a voice
On the phone. Faraway you and I
Recount the tiptoeing we do through
The days– the beautiful funny
Blips on our children’s radar
Of attention and meaning that
Remind us that perfection is inside
The ordinary.

    I love the simplicity of word choice here. It paints a dreamy yet slightly melancholy picture. It’s not obvious, but it does work.
