Creativity Over Time – 5

REMEMBRANCE, LOVE, FAITH, HOPE

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

These two poems were published by Bell’s Letters.

Time Of Singing, 2012

another year
has passed since
my mother’s passing
I sit and quietly read
a book she would like too

light falls
through yellow maple leaves
the mercy of God

This was my poem in Full of Moonlight: Haiku Society of America 2016 Members’ Anthology, edited by David Grayson.

grateful for the same roads
