Grief And Acceptance – updated January 24, 2016

Grief And Acceptance
is a quiet place for posts
around this theme.

I wrote this new poem on January 23, 2016:

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

for Enola M. Borgh
1917 – 2004

*

These are examples of earlier poems:

country cemetery
trumpet vines
growing taller
than the gravestones

(Published in Time Of Singing, 2012)

*

sunrise
in early May
tiny bird sings
on the branch
of budding lilacs

*

evergreens grow
in the country cemetery
I don’t know how it can be
that love keeps growing
all these years
only ever-grateful
that love does grow

*

Thank you and blessings,

Ellen Grace Olinger
