airport

blended in with the hum
created by many voices
I see her and two children
alone

tired, fresh from a flight
the baby yawns in her arms
and the toddler scowls
waiting

her eyes are weary, but then -
she smiles at the sudden sound
a new voice behind her
him

love, hope, excitement collide
four people in one corner
and hub-bub dims to background noise
together

this is really beautiful Krista. I wish I could write poetry like that!

I loved this, Krista. I can just picture it...really sweet.
