V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #72


My Wish 

Once I wished I could climb to the top of the highest mountain.  

When I got there, I wished I could soar through the clouds like an eagle. 

While soaring, I wished I could dive into the ocean and catch a large fish for dinner. 

After catching the fish and letting him go, I wished I could swim to a beautiful coral reef to see the clownfish. 

Once I saw the clownfish, I wished I could have that beautiful fish at my home.  

That wish can’t come true. 

I have to leave that clownfish in his own home. 

He needs his home to survive.  

My house cannot meet his needs. 

I wish that I lived on the side of an ocean where I could have an underwater bedroom with a glass window to see the fish swim by. 

I wish all of the clownfish could know that they should swim by my window, where they would be safe.

As I sit quietly waiting I ponder my reason for being here.

Is it the quiet inside my car? Is it the bustle all around me?

As I sit quietly waiting I close my eyes and take a deep breath.

Should I be tense right now? Should I be sitting well relaxed?

As I sit quietly waiting I turn my gaze toward the side door.

Is that him exiting the building? Is it that time already?

As I sit quietly waiting I feel the quiver through my body.

Is that my nerves that he may see me? Is it anticipation?

As I sit quietly waiting I feel a heat travel through my body.

Is that a flame waiting for kindle to reignite it? Is it shame?

As I sit quietly waiting I realize the bond was broken years ago and I do not want to go back.
