Home

I felt the hot afternoon sun the moment I jumped out of the school bus and skipped down the narrow mud road. The empty water bottle dangled around my neck as I began to walk faster. My black shoes were soiled and dusty and one sock was shorter than the other as always.

I Remember…

I sauntered down the same path today Retracing every step we walked, it seems like yesterday Tugging at your finger  and scrambling “Race you to the brook!” I began running. Your laughter rang in my ears
