The sounds of laughter…girls singing… heckling little boys… the tight embrace of family…friends.  I had to walk away…sit in the periphery of the firelit campsite….look inward at my family… A circle, somehow tightly woven in spite of itself….DSC03011

Today… I want to sit by the fire and watch you…hear you… experience who you are.. dream your dreams… think your thoughts… smile your smile…. I want you to know far into your years that there is nothing more important than you and Baker… I will be last.

My soul is departed and I am no longer my own… I am no longer my own.  Happy Birthday, Annabelle.  I love you so very much.

Reunion…

Her hair swirled about… leaves riding a restless breeze…going nowhere..unable to find a suitable place.  Careful steps on wet rocks… arms extended for balance to the tips of her long fingers… such a little girl.  Little Soul.  Neshume ‘ Le.  Upending boulders for chance discoveries…. her brother’s help…ziskind..  His hand to assist climbing from the creek…

Coming full circle… discerning trails ahead…

Looked deeply into their faces… further than I’ve ever been…. a memory that has passed from my childhood to theirs like the shapes of their faces…color of eyes.  The results of careful steps… uncounted decisions…immeasurable efforts… unquantified love.. and slippery rocks. 

Wrapped alone… a thick quilt… steady rain on my roof… woke to dim ladybugs in empty rooms… this dream… this wonderful…. awful dream.  Shay-neh Kinder, Zis-seh Kinder.
