Sips of Air

By Kerry Fantelli

There you have been
All these years
Hiding many, if not most parts of you
Taking in small sips of air so that others had enough
Helium puffs
That made your voice even smaller
Slowly drifting

Perspectives

“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.”—Anais Nin

Perspective.  It alters everything.

I have this sad, heavy heart feeling as my daughter returns to college for the remainder of her spring semester.   As I clean up the house, I can’t help but smile, thinking of how I will miss seeing her coat hanging over the dining room chair (no use for a closet!) and her belongings strewn across the couch.  I like the tidiness of the ...
