I woke up this morning a young girl;
Life was paper dolls and teddy bears.
Somehow I lost track of time,
and the bears were traded for boys
the paper dolls turned to text books.
At lunch I graduated and started
my afternoon as a young adult.
What a glorious afternoon–
bartending, college, pregnancy,
motherhood, teacher, farmer.
As I begin to prepare my evening meal,
eaten without my adult son,
I wonder how so many grains
have fallen through the hourglass.
I wonder what the dropping of the
remaining grains will bring to my world.
