Into Her Dreams

Like skaters on icy pavement
gliding together into the city skyline,
grey against clouds of snow.
Winter storm warning, veiled
by music and coffee, conversation and silence.
Precious Cargo
delivered into the big shoulders,
Windy City.
Blonde against steel structures,
she slips into the hurried city streets,
the huddled crowd,
into the world.
This father beams in consolation.
She doesn’t look back,
blue eyes gazing into her future.
A momentary stop.
Heading home,
grey fading into Western twilight.
Long headlights slipping past.
Thoughtful in musical interlude.
Snow dust, shifting like dry mist on pavement,
passing underneath like sands of time.
Flurries fall.
How easily she slipped out of my car into her dreams.

  1. Timely. My 2 yr old daughter just flew to Chicago today with my husband. It’s the first time we’ve ever been apart.
