my dad has interesting dreams

in one he's a little kid out in the

back pasture dangling his feet in the

small pool he and his brother made

by damming up the meandering crick

he sees jesus gliding across the water

jesus looks just like his pictures on the

sunday school wall "young man," says

jesus,"is this the sea of galilee?"

"no, sir," replies ronald, "this is

spring brook" jesus looks confused

"then what am I doing here?" he says

vanishes and that's the end of the dream
