Airplane

Conner.plane
My grandson’s battered airplane no longer flies.

 

My 9-year-old grandson came home from school and said to his mother:
 
“I got this airplane from the treasure box today. It’s the first time all year that I had enough tickets to get anything. I spent some on lunch with a friend. It’s the first time I got to do that too. So I spent all I had left on this neat airplane that did loops.
 
“Then at dismissal, a 5th grader grabbed it from me and pretended like he was going to fly it, but he scraped it against the wall and bent the wings, so it doesn’t work anymore. He was a Purple Folder kid, so I know he has anger issues.
 
“Maybe I can earn some more tickets….”

 


A grounded blackbird
looks longingly at the sky—
three clouds bear witness.

Visions

Version 2
Late afternoon in the Sonoran Desert, Yuma County, Arizona
 


Visions of evening—
a dove returns to her nest,
cooing one last song.

I Thought I Had a Vision


I thought I had a vision,
But it was just a dream;
It vanished, upon waking,
Like some pathetic stream
 
That trickled through the wastelands
And sank into the sand—
There no one could retrieve it,
Not even with skilled hand.
 
I now abjure all visions
And leave them to the wise,
For they know what to look for
With their perceptive eyes.
 
They’ll gladly share their findings
With those of us who yearn
For something with more grandeur
Than gas pains or heartburn.
