January 5

January 5 and today is my father’s birthday.

Poems For My Parents

Taking turns
Letting each other go
Only to learn again
How love grows,
Mother

love for you
became her care
until she joined you there
grief gives way to fields and wind
and now I hear your voice again

Poems published in Bell’s Letters.

for Harold and Enola Borgh
