Petrichor cloud balloons bob
as the band tunes up; it’s time
to celebrate heaven’s newest
angel. She’s been orienting
for a few weeks and just
passed the fit-for-duty quiz.
She’s test-flying her wings;
landing is expected in five.
God always gets the first dance.
My mom passed away on June 21. This is what I imagine she is doing right now.

Merril is today’s host of dVerse’ Quadrille Monday. Merril says:
If you’re new to dVerse or the quadrille, it’s simply a poem of 44 words, excluding the title. It can be in any form, rhymed or unrhymed, metered, or unmetered. You MUST use the word “celebrate” or some form of the word in your poem.
