End of Summer, Selections and Reflections


As the eldest child prepares herself

for another year

another year

another year

a final year

of high school,







as the youngest child wakes up

from the humming

little X Box

and opens up his books,







As the husband returns from Sturgis

with a rumbling sense

of the road

and the deepening scent

of coming home,






the mom looks to the rapid

world,


and murmurs

oh ...



slow,

slow,

slow.
