Chewing a treat that I had just been given, I lay in my favorite spot, a place I’d hollowed out in the cool, damp earth of the rose garden, listening to the sounds of the afternoon fade one by one; except for the screeching of the cicadas, a sound that lingered in my ears like the tearing fabric of the afternoon sky.
Suddenly, I felt myself floating! Yes, I was being lifted toward
the sky but I couldn’t open my eyes or cry out. My body would not
respond to my commands! In desperation I screamed my fear but it
never left my mind. Then, all was darkness.
