She and I were witness to a probably once
in a lifetime event and I will always remember
her on that night.
We were walking in my neighbor’s pasture
around dusk in early November and we
saw a flock of blackbirds that covered
the sky and flew above us for over
half and hour. We watched them
together until there was no light left
and then listened to their wings
in the sky in the dark.
I don’t know how many birds were in that
flock, but it had to number in the hundreds
Last night she walked a little with
David and they saw a shooting star
She was our star and she will
be forever missed.
