In a clearing

where tribes

once worshipped,

Wendy

placed a compass

in my hand.

"But shouldn't

you keep it?"

I worried.

She laughed.

"I never learned

to read such things,"

She turned

purposefully

moving towards

the thick of the forest

surrounding us.

"WAIT!" I cried out--

staring at the arrows

spinning in my palm

"You're going the wrong way!"

She stopped

she smiled,

one step away

from dissolving

into the trees.

"Honey,

just because you're lost

does not mean

everyone is."
