Aesop's fans will be wondering where he went when he returned from his trip to visit Jackie (who is doing very well post-surgery by the way!).....well he wanted to visit New York City.


Aesop called today from New York City
Fall’s arrived and the trees are quite pretty -
He said he’d done what he went there to do…
With his own eyes to see what his heart knew was true .

He hopped on a subway and went to Ground Zero
Where so many died and so many were heroes.
He stood with the crowd - oh so quiet they were
And his eyes filled with tears, everything was a blur.

All the pain and the suffering of that day, of that hour
When the world changed forever with the tumbling towers
Touched Aesop’s heart as it ached for the humans who died
And those left behind who remember and still cry.

A tiny American flag he did leave at the site
A salute he performed then he left in the night.
As he hopped on a bus and headed for home,
He felt oh so tired of this “life on the roam”.

As he rested his head on his bundle of clothes
So exhausted was he from his nose to his toes.
He fell fast asleep and dreamt gerbil dreams,
Full of fun, food, and happiness - no more traveling schemes!

Glad to see he made it back to the US safely, he certainly brightened up Chestnut Ward when he visited me there and brought me a tiny American flag too! Jackie <> <

The grief process in this poem is straight forward. He grieved, made a tribute and then let it go. I wish I could be more like that little mouse. Very good, Pammie.

Take him to the mountains nearby for refreshment! So sad and still a silent ache in all of us.

(((((( FEEL BETTER SOON, you hear? SOOOO glad the surgery went well! You are in my prayers!)))))

As for YOU, Pam, this is a delightful write; enjoyed reading Aesop's latest tale! Wish I could visit NYC, but without the Twin Towers, it just wouldn't be the same. :( I can't stand to look at the skyline without the Towers gracing its skyline; it still causes me to tear up and cry!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :(

Thank you Pamela for letting me know what I have always known, that there was more to Aesop than swilling whiskey and chasing honeypot gerbils and marvelous mouse's. A wonderful poem about a wonderful little rodent that you just wouldn't allow to be shoved aside and forgotten.
