Three favorite poems:

clouds and yet
enough light
to fill a jam jar
with the last
of the carnations

poems we read
again and again
washing an old plate
the pattern
still new

roses in the sun
some ending
some beginning
and some in full bloom
good to grow older

Thank you

Daily Prompt: Cherish

100_7998

I cherish memories of the caregiving years with my mother and family.  I could not imagine blogs then.  My mother often asked, “Are you writing?”  She was called Home in 2004.

Grateful for a quiet Christmas this year.

And I have to review my archives to remember all I have written since the caregiving years.  One day at a time, and also trust for the “big picture” over time.

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

Our Thanksgiving plant from Mentink’s Piggly Wiggly in Oostburg, Wisconsin is still lovely.  This photo is from November 2017.
