A child’s flip-flop
on the sidewalk
never missed

Not a friend of discomfort
yet she doesn’t feel the loss

Arms hold her
above the grime and grit
a shoulder
assumed, expected, accepted

No fears
just sweet surrender
to the joy
to the safety
to the love

Is this what grace
feels like?

About Mona

I am a wife, mother, and author. I taught high school for 27 years and I was a hospital and hospice chaplain until my health required that I retire. I miss my hospital coworkers and cannot imagine how terrible this year and last year have been. I want to be there for them in at least this small way.
