Waiting for My Boy
It’s the longest part of the day
Waiting while the sun that
shines overhead drops and hides
behind the oak across the street and cool
shade replaces warm sunshine on
The yellow school bus engine revs
as it approaches.
It stops in front of the oak.
My boy runs across the street, his
satchel bulging with homework that will take
him away from me for hours.
My tail wiggles, then
ripples through me
my whole body
He flings the gate open,
kneels and wraps his arms around
