what happened was better than what was planned

we always think
we're so smart

trekking son
flew out of
South America

he was landing 6am
to be picked up
by my brother before work
and brought to my parents

after 9am their time
I called
"no, landing only at 9, call later"
two hours later
"not yet, call again"

Suddenly, shock, surprise
a vision of their eldest grandson
staggering out of the guestroom

had landed at 6
was brought home
while they slept
he slept, too

much better
my mother didn't wake up
early, waiting, worrying

the "mistake"
better than the plan
thank G-d
