Why do we lose or cast away things that once seemed so important to us? We turn our attention elsewhere and…POOF… the past has vanished, along with many of the things we once cherished – and took for granted.
Found: one pony on side of road near Bus 75 stop. Pink with splotches of gray.
Lost: colorful bug. Escaped from garage. Friendly. Will not harm you.
Found: one glove. Alone on fence post. Raise your hand if you think it’s yours.
And the bus keeps rolling, oblivious to all that is lost and found along the line.
Lost: one 30-foot trailer. May be filled with tires. Do not open.
Lost: one childhood. Family could not pay the rent. Now live in tent.
What we lose or cast aside we can usually replace – often with something better. But not always. Life goes on. Families keep moving. Bushes keep growing. And the bus keeps rolling, oblivious to all that is lost and found along the line.
