Small Stone - Bear-y Glad It's Over

up before dawn, dental appointment on my mind
stomach aflutter with nerves
a cup of tea and nothing else

fresh snow and frigid temperatures 
slow driving on icy roads
hands gripping the wheel

morning moon a communion wafer
ice fog on the peaks
let it be over soon in my thoughts

home - relief
a little poorer and worse for wear
tooth needs a crown

I need a rest
bear-y glad it's over
until next time... 

(for those who read my stone about my broken tooth, my dentist and his wife had a healthy baby boy)
