Commute

City, Transit, Streetcar, Toronto, Transportation

Homeward bound on the evening train

Past platforms damp with evening rain

Workday over, now the commute

Soon home to comfort, shedding business suit

A bite to eat, tell the kids goodnight

Then with loving spouse by candlelight

A sip of something – stress to allay

And share some tales of our day

Evening: A Mirror Cinquain

Evening
Houselights appear
Baths done, pajamas on
Children to be soon tucked in bed
Quiet

Moment
Drink before the television
School lunches still to pack
Doors checked -secured
Goodnight
