Circle Upon Half-Circle


The warmth radiates from the wood fire

in concentric half-circles.

In the nearest arc shoes lay upon the hearth

drying.

Next outward bread dough rises.

If they were switched neither would be as happy.

Next, a bare-chested boy

draws rainbows over a melting snowman.

Perhaps he cannot fully imagine the cold.

At the far end of the table

a short-sleeved boy watches a tornado tube

swirl round and round.

In the next room the long-sleeved boy plays a pinball game

on the computer; the mouse is not the same as

the real thing I say, but he doesn't know any better.

Further on, in the living room, the girl

with a blanket wrapped around her shoulders,

plays some game of solitaire I do not know.

She rapidly places cards around the circle

faster than I can figure out the rules.

I go through the kitchen to get the dough.

It is time to bake the rolls.
