What if?


What if?

What if Tom wasn’t home on leave with Gil and Ken and sitting on the porch of 621 Locust Street?

What if Joan didn’t drive by with the sun on her hair and the lights in her eyes?  

What if her musical laughter didn’t sing on currents of air?

What if Tom’s heart didn’t respond to the silvery siren’s call and look up and say, “Who is that girl?”

What if Gil and Ken didn’t say, “That’s our sister”?

What if Tom’s heart cry didn’t reach his lips and shout to the world,“That’s the girl for me”?

What if Joan’s best friend didn’t beg and beg her to invite Tom to the Taffy Pull?
What if?

About bjdonaldson

I think of myself as a Renaissance woman with a variety of passions. If you visited me, you might find me hanging out with my husband and children. Our Golden Retriever would be lovingly near. I am a Literacy Coach/Reading Specialist at an elementary school where I provide professional development and coaching to teachers. Formerly, I was a Reading Recovery teacher, an interventionist, and a middle and elementary classroom teacher. Getting up in the morning is not hard; I still love making a difference in the lives of children and teachers.
