The Loophole

“Why would anyone choose this tomb?”

Sally’s voice ricocheted in the clearing. I felt my face flush and dug my nails into my palms to keep from responding.

“I realize they don’t need light, but what do they have against air?”

“They’re blind, you know, not deaf,” Mark noted dryly. I could’ve kissed him.

Sally shrugged. She leaned forward and slapped the wall. “Thick walls. I bet they’re as good as.”

“Or not.”

Sally boomeranged off the wall as if electrocuted.

A hand waved out of an arrow slit, two inches from her waist.

I grinned.

“Come right in. Dinner’s ready.”

Come This Way

There is no need to sneak

Or take the long way around

You’re invited to step on

The green grassy ground.

Such a lovely reminder

That lawns are to be used

It’s a warm friendly offer

That I shall not refuse!

Please be there

For the hope

For the plans.

Please be there

For the trials and the errors

The triumphs

The sorrows

The fumbles

The sighs.

Please be there

For the small things

The bigger,

Stay dialed in

To moments long gone,

To those still to come.

Please be there

In awareness, in person,

Pay full mind

To this life.

To your life’s

Invitation.

You are one of a kind.
