home work on dreams and persistence

I see her sitting center of that grey mattress
bare legs curled beneath, double checking my sheet:

      a bare bulb cast a glow 
      on cob webs hanging down,
      all around cicadas  and crickets
      chirp in the rustle of night life.

   Sleepy and weepy I'm grateful
     to be at her side again.
     I cling to her words-
    my lessons in dreams and persistance.

I see our lives revolving around 
in a web of connections in patterns.

I see my choices and views,
their angles and reflections.

I see her faith and hope
of love to begin again.

And now I sit with my son before bed
legs curled beneath, double checking his sheet
       and it is not his homework I see.
