~ A Happy Place


~ A Happy Place

 

My ‘Happy Place’ is the farm

Where I knew not danger

Knew not harm

When bright-eyed wonderment

In upcast eyes, shone

Before Time turned the pages

One…by…one.

Cotton candy clouds 
Symbol of Life on the verge

Upcast teenage eyes

~ Dearest Father…


~ Dearest Father
Your death 
Left a void
An eternal pause 
Beyond the eithers
Beneath the waters deep
Or within the earth you sleep
A void.

~ FLowers for Mother


Flowers for Mother

 

She picked the petals
One by one,
Tossed them ‘neath
A sultry sun,

 

A waft of wind
Carried them away;
As Mother
Received an earthly bouquet

 

A sorrow-filled daughter,
Here, earthbound
Picked herself
Up from the ground…

 

Recalling words her Mother
Once said:

 

“Death has no hold on memories,
when I am gone, that’s where you’ll find me;
the mind is a garden full of delight –
search my daughter with all your might,
and cast away all thoughts of sorrow
we’ll meet again in tomorrows, morrow”.

~ To Loss


Loss perched

Perched upon my days

As I walked through life

In a daze

Enduring what could not 

Be changed

Mothers floppy hats
Laced gloves line little fingers

Womanhood pretended

Uprooted Oak tree

Broken branches lie, decay

Roots lost to the winds
