Recharge Station: 1980+_Pencil_Drawing by Carol Hershey

12/13/08_Poem by Betina Hershey Russo

Up there, in that circle after life,
May you be completely tucked
Under the fluffy red covers
Of your recharge station
With your favorite books,
A glass of soul water,
And big fuzzy slippers waiting.

And may you stay there
Until I am plugged in
To the recharge station on your left,
The one just recently emptied
By the latest birth,
The one that will let me tap
On the walls between us
And send you messages
About the marriages and kids
You missed.
