August 20, 2017, Prescott-
NOTE: I am not shying away from posting about my visits to Harrisonburg and Lexington, VA. That post will be up, tonight (dated July 22). Considering one of the people in the post, though, brought to mind the topic below.
So, I have a hole in my heart, right now.
I, who pride myself on letting those I love fly away,
knowing that if they are really meant to be here,
they will return.
If not, they will light elsewhere.
There are, though, people
or lack of communication,
hurt like Hell.
I guess that’s part of the physical realm,
and my mentors, ever steadfast,
will admonish me to let go.
I will, in short order,
but for now,
I am massaging the soreness.
People who run,
or are in hiding,
or are just silent,
I wish you every measure
of love, dignity and solace.
It will be nice,
if I am in your good graces,
Fly where you will,
and know this roost is being kept fresh.
(This is for all my surrogate daughters,
who have disappeared and my friend,
who sped off, without a word.)
