The forest black, cold, frightening looms before me. My heart pounding, shaking fear is all I can feel. Frightful noises all around me, crackling branches thump as they hit the ground.
I want to step forward to see what I can see. I can not move, every fiber is frozen. I want to cry out help me please help me, my voice will not respond. I want to hang on to a branch to steady my shaking legs but my hand will not reach up. My throat dry the words stuck.
Suddenly I hear a voice calling my name in the distance. Again I hear the voice this time stronger still. It gives me courage. I will go to it, what is it saying? It is my savior, it is my helping hand. I find my strength, my feet start to move, my feet feel the ground beneath them now. The voice is clear now. The fear is gone. I am not lost.
It is my mom’s voice, she is calling me in from the garden, it’s time for lunch.

Suprisingly I found this it is from my elementary school days. I think it was from fourth or fifth grade. I changed a couple of the words but the rest is original.

  1. A very Alice in Wonderland magical quality about this piece.
    – reminding me of a vision I have of being bathed in a kitchen sink…comfortable and safe without any fear of water.

    Lovely photo – I have an arbor that has little white flowers in late autumn…

  2. I remember thinking I was going to get an A+ on it. But, the nun only gave me a B+. She told me I could do better. However my mom loved it and put one of those gold stars on it. In those days you had to lick the back of the star to make it stick. She use to keep a box of them in her bureau. She had six of us and used the stars wisely.
