Pumpkin Trio (c) in medias res by Melinda Kucsera


“Do You know what I’m thankful for?” Sarn asked.
“No,” Ran said, walking beside, hand fisted
in his father’s trouser leg. They walked past
many statues as the tunnel twisted,
but the question kept his son from straying
even though the lad’s fingers itched to trace
the stone folded, imitating cloth draping.
Quiet wrapped them up and kept the slow pace.
“What you thankful for?” Ran asked, when Sarn failed
to say. Sarn smiled at his son, “can’t you guess?”
Ran’s brow furrowed as the lad tried and failed
to work it out. “You tell me, I not guess.”
Sarn scooped up his son for a face to face,
“I’m thankful for you, you give me solace.”
