  2. She was in the car behind us as the funeral procession made it’s slow and winding path through the cemetery. I wondered what she would be wearing- something scandalous I’m sure. I craned my neck back and tried to see through her through the back window but her car’s were tinted. I wondered, as I had been wondering for 5 years now, what my father saw in her. It didn’t matter, I supposed, with my father laying in the mahogany casket, bumping along on his way to be buried in the wet ground.

  3. For the longest, I would see a beautiful crane sitting outside, resting on a smooth, flat rock in the creek behind our house. He was a gorgeous creature, his long, slim neck occasionally reaching out, sipping, it seemed, at the icy water of the creek. Then, one day, he was gone. Years have passed, but I still miss him, that gentle bird I came to know as ‘my’ crane. I can only hope that one day, he will return home, to that rock in the babbling brook.

But for now, it deserved it’s place in the town.
