Flashes Before My Eyes

spinner.gif

I

watch

slowly

 

as my

life

flashes

before my

eyes.

 

Everything -

even Mom’s

chicken

pot pie -

goes

through my

mind.

 

I

remember

when

Aunt Josie

got me

the

glittery

piggy bank

for

Christmas.

 

I

remember

when

I scraped my

knee

and my

mother

grabbed some

band-aids

and fastened them

on.

 

I

remember

when

I was

sitting at

lunch in

7th grade

and a

‘trouble kid’

punched the

school nerd.

 

All of these

things -

 

everything -

 

flash through

as I see the

car

zooming

toward

 

me.

Yeah, that's my first poem. Watcha think? I wrote it right after reading Glimpse by Carol Lynch Williams (such a good book, btw)....so...yeah. :)
