We all went to a local park today.
Kids tossed a frisbee around.
“C’mon Mom play, we’ll teach you…c’mon..”
They wonged the useless disc in wild arcs that most often dived hard in the grass.
I walked the perimeter of the park with Hoo thinking of the friends so recently lost.
My mind is racing with thoughts and notions.
I’m going to quit my job, I’m going to live on the beach,I have to get out of town…I just have to.
The frisbee hits at my feet.
I pick it up and easily throw it back-hand.
It flies fast. Flat. Far. Straight. Way beyond where the kids are playing.
“Hey Mom! Where did you learn to throw a frisbee like that???”
My mind flashes to a sunny faced boy winging a frisbee,
and I have to smile.
He taught me this,
With frisbee the lesson is,
Just let it go.
