Homecoming

The children excitedly scream while leaping about the floor.
Giddy with delight, they scamper for position behind the front door.
Laden down with grocery bags and exhausted from her day,
Mum’s swamped with hugs and kisses before she is in halfway.
Like summer flowers reaching up to follow the path of the sun,
Her radiance is reflected back from them with love, ‘We missed you mum.’
