Poems About Care and Gratitude

autumn leaves
the caregiver finds time
to rest

Snow melting
                in March . . .
                                my mother’s new smile

Time Of Singing (Vol. 30, No. 1; Spring 2003). A long ago memory!

groceries for Mom
fresh flowers
always on the list

more memories
sometimes than
my heart can hold
I select one or two
write a poem

warm memories
and new dreams
yellow bird
on the branch
with a few gold leaves

how quickly
another generation
grows
seems I only
looked away
for a moment
how good their work
how beautiful their art

falling leaves
and silent sunrise
how easy today
to let go of old dreams
cook some eggs
wash the dishes
write this poem
