Ethan’s Days

October 10, 2012 — ,

I shield his eyes to ward off the image

a doe on the side of the roadway, who did not win.


My son fights me

peeling back my fingers

eager to see, yet not.


My last boy spends his summers with me

in the countryside

far from friends and foe.


I’m unable to accept that he is moving on

and opening his eyes to continue

his journey beyond me.


We still have years before he travels off.


Passing no more obstacles

I pull up the laughter

drenching myself in his smiles

denying that college will call him.


Then he too will drive on.


What do you think?
