Rear View Mirror

I check my rear view mirror,
Is it safe to change my lane,
Side mirrors checked but its not clear,
Everything’s fogged by pouring rain.

I make my move and extreme pain,
Airbags explode streams of light,
Trails of yellow fire in my brain,
Sirens reel in the dark night.

For Nette Onclaud’s “Hutain this One” contest
Won 6th place

Dedicated to my sister-in-law who just
had a near fatal accident.

    Lee-Dear, I am so sad to read this! I hope she is okay!!!! Prayer sent your way that she heals. The poem IS well written and a heartfelt tribute to a loved family member. :-) Now, I would love you to write a SECOND Hutain, that directly follows this one...on her recovery, and perhaps an even deeper realization on the gift of life. Not now, but when a full recovery is made! Big Hug, Cyndi

    Thanks so much Cyndi, that is very kind. Her accident was just Wednesday night, so everything is still raw. She is doing well, greatly appreciate your challenge, I will work on it later. Thanks again for your positive feedback, it really is so helpful. Lee
