Windy Day


I was taken by surprise
when I visited you this morning.

The wind had whisked your little elephant rattle
and Paw Patrol pup from your grave
and kicked them down the sidewalk yards away.

To be honest, I might have over-reacted,
as I screamed in panic and tumbled down the hill
to scoop them up, to clean them off,
to put them back in place.

I guess it had just never occurred to me
that they might blow away.
