15 Feathers

One for each member of the 511th Engineer Dive Detachment


I walked the beach yesterday, cried, wandered, 
let go of my Soldier Son who deployed 
to Kuwait for nine months


There were so many secret messages 
in the form of feathers
I gathered
I walked
I cried


I looked up
I was lifted
 Do you see the Secret Message?

loving how you honor
your son, deb,
& all those other fine young soldiers,
& our entire country
with your proud flag
&
heart*felt prayers ...

{{ my own momma
use to tell the story
of the flag
hanging in her parents' window
when she joined the Navy WAVES
during in WWII }}

fifteen feathers
fifteen prayers
a collection of love, light, protection, the enormity of a mother's heart.
let's take this journey one day at a time.
widening the circle.
