solsc.2012: she's coming 23/31

It's Friday
the last day
before spring break
and she's coming.

She's coming! 
She's really, 
really coming!!

She leaves 
early this morning
before the sun even decides
to peek beyond the horizon.

She'll hop in the car
with music and audiobooks
and lots of time to think,
so paper for scribbles of slices.

She'll drive and drive and drive
stop for a rest and drive
and drive and fill up on gas
and drive and drive and drive.

Almost ten hours later
she'll arrive.
She'll be here!
She'll be all smiles and hugs!!

Be safe, my momma.
Let the angels
travel with you
watching, loving, protecting.
