His First Wife

by Denise Stoll

Normality: Opening my eyes to my husband. Oddity: My husband's first wife hovering just beyond the get-well flowers. I move toward her passing through a lily onto warm sand. We walk sharing recollections of the earthly family we shared. She and our husband's life as newlyweds, starting a family and watching it grow. I share with her how their lives intertwined with mine after she'd gone, picking up where she left off and becoming Nana to our grandchildren. Wondrous, beautiful, wordless memories so clearly vivid as if neither of us ever missed a single moment.
