... poetry ...

her first Prayer, from somewhere up there where I’ve forgotten how to go.

we were riding down highway 129

top down, windows opened.

blue sky was dotted with fluffy Spring clouds

you held your favorite stuffed dog

out the window, letting him fly

mom’s brown scarf was tied around

his neck for a cape, which flapped wildly

you were flying as well

i could see it in your eyes

as you guided his soft body thru the

air, you, too, soared, somewhere above

my head.  somewhere up there where

I’ve forgotten how to go.

in a moment of exhiliration

you let your pup go and he tumbled

to the street and rolled to a stop as

we drove on.

Tears and cries welled up from deep

inside your little heart and as you turned

to watch him lie helpless in the road

all your little soul could say

from somewhere in there,

where I’ve forgotten how to go, was

“Oh God, oh God, oh God!”
