Deja Vu

Going through Mom's closets

Much like the well-known wardrobe 
in the old spare room, this closet sits 
waiting for visitors... and I am Lucy
stepping into another place and time;
not Narnia, but Kelly High, stepping
back to my youth, back to party days
with formal dances and bright futures.
Each gown worn still hangs there as if 
nothing ever happened, nothing at all.

A blue jay bathed in the dogs' water today
as I watched through the kitchen window.
You once said you prefer blue over red
birds; how I yearn to hear your words again.
