Steps in the Estonian bog

Late for dinner
for love
for trials
missed the opportunity
for success
for without giving in
negotiating agreement
Late for church
for work
for peace
missed the transport
home to coffee to hugs to groups
of kids
playing tag, sliding down
climbing up
for love
for trials
missed the words
of thoughts beyond at dawn not candy
sunsets with daughters
muddy pants, steps in the Estonian bog
for work
for peace
of kids climbing up
in the hospital
sleeping, for success
sliding
early for death
