Weekday Mornings

She enjoys her coffee before the chaos. Soon it’s “Mom, I’m late for school! Mom, breakfast! Honey, my tie!” She’s a juggler, a whirling dervish,

until

the old tape recorder turns off. The voices stop.

Ben’s passed on. The kids are away at college.

A solitary breakfast awaits her.

      Thank you, Sanch. Every weekday morning when my daughter is being a sloth, I keep reminding myself that some day I’ll miss this, lol!

    I was expecting “Mom chaos!” slice of life and hoping I was wrong– Which I was! I liked the sad twist and how you illustrated her loneliness with those flat, factual lines.
