Quiet breaths

Dear Izzy, Max, and Kate,

Yesterday evening, around sunset, out on my bike I stopped and watched kids swinging on a rope swing into a deep creek.

This morning, from my truck, as the sun rose and fog clung to the warming valleys and hills I saw three horses lingering in open space like shadows around a solitary tree that held a tire swing.

Then I walked through silent, empty, 6am streets of a small town and ate breakfast alone at a Mercantile. Full of joy.

I pictured you at home still sleeping warmly in your beds, twisted sheets. Quiet breaths. 

Sunrise and sunset. Open eyes and ears. Beauty and silence.

I love you,

- Daddy
