My husband just made a sunflower pop up
from the ground with his bare hands.

I don't know what to do. 
Or what to say.
But it's hard not to 
admit that the signs
were there to begin with. 

I remember this one time
I had picked a few daffodils 
I forgot to water them
for a week.

They were browned
and wilted
I left the room for five minutes
to go get a trash bag to put them
in and throw them out.

They were good as new.
Sitting on the windowsill
facing the morning sun. 
No explanation.

Now I understand.
Phillip lets out a little cry. 
Ezra shoots up to his feet
and tells me not
to be afraid.
Not to tell anyone 
about what I saw. 

I just rock our son 
and nod.
I'm in a daze.
