The Surprise

RDP Tuesday: READY

Heironymus Bosch

I am ready for anything-

go ahead

throw me another plague

another faithless and treacherous lover

another bad knee

take another loved one to their grave

Go ahead

hit me!

Go on-

I. Am. Ready.

And then the call came

and she asked me

” Lola, we’re going to Disney on Ice- right? “

Yes we are

I told my Granddaughter

and she was so excited she dropped the phone

and I could hear her laughing -” Lola and her airplane

are going to be here soon!”

and my heart broke apart into a billion stars

and set my soul ablaze.

In case you’re wondering

that feels fantastic and

I was not ready for that feeling.

Not ready at all.
