Dreams While Waiting

Updated: May 23, 2020

And yet this morning

I sit alone in my car

At a roadside motel

Listening to Jazz

Charlie Parker and Ella Fitzgerald

Whose songs have wings

Lifting me above earth

Into spirit places

Where I can stay cool

Even in this desert

While I’m waiting

For my four teenage girls

Whose dreams I dream

In blood and tears

Terry M Pace (2003)
