Separate But Together

The sun slips below the horizon

Dusk settles over the yard

Children return home

From an afternoon of bikes and baseball

Dinner dishes done

Each now to his own pursuit

Television on

Turning the little brain to mush

Video game engaged

Oldest in his own world now

Computer or laptop

Mom and Dad message each other

From across the room

One by one

They fade to black

Until the house sleeps

To do it all again tomorrow.
