La Tragedia

a family waits to cross a busy road
mother, father and child
father begins to move with the stroller
my mind screams "too soon, too soon, too soon!"
it seems unreal!
the scene unfolds in slow motion
cars screech to a sudden stop
angry horns sound out in long peels
i am sure i will see a tragedy!
then i realize the family has made it safely across
i begin to breath normally, my heart slows to normal
i feel as if i have just witnessed a miracle


  1. Oh that is such a scary experience!

    You've expressed the fright so well I felt as though I were watching the scene myself.

    P.S. Thank you so much for your comment on my small stone site, I truly appreciate your feedback :)

    1. Thank you Jade. And you're very welcome. :-)
