Peter Pan


We stood by the wall and made shadows in the warm pink glow of the evening sun. 

John spread his arms wide with the confident abandon of a toddler, and I saw his perfect silhouette framed against the white wall of the house.

For a moment, he looked like Peter Pan, poised in shadow and ready for action.

"All children, except one, grow up" I said to myself.

And for the briefest of moments, I felt as though my heart would break.
