Enjoying The Laundromat


Here at the laundromat, sitting here writing while
there are so many people washing their clothes -
every washer and dryer being full.

Little ones being good, helping parents fold as
best they can.

A little boy, gingerly holding up his father's
sock against his foot, smiling and saying, 'Look
it fits'!

Then erupting into a fit of laughter as he realizes
that I was noticing.

A cute little boy, enjoying life even though he's
stuck at the laundromat, brings a smile to my heart.

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
