Time

Birthday


A candle on her favorite food

Lit on this her 10th year passing

I sit and wonder in the quiet moment

No birthday song to wish a lasting

Wishes for the future gone

As the days have passed quickly

And you are not here to belong

At this table of celebration

Yet it is for you and only you

Leaving loved ones with their own

deliberation.

Spring Again


The sky begins

To rumble

The earth breaks

And begins to crumble

Bulbs push up

To soak in rain

And signs now show

Spring returned again

Birthday Stack


Birthday Stack

The stack went high
So high in the sky
The candles glowed
And went on and on
The special way
I started my day
With Mom and Dad
And siblings too
The glitter and gleam
Reflected in me
As the dreams for the day
Go as far as I can see.

The Cup


A moment alone

I start to think

How hectic the world

Life in a blink.

I breath in deeply

And say a prayer

Grateful for the sunshine

The kindness the care

I ran this morning

On ice and snow

The trees glisten

The ice fairies glow

I hear the geese

Sound celebration

The storm is gone

Now jubilation

As I crunched

My shoes as I run

I looked up to see

A heart shaped sun

Embers


A Day to remember

In winter’s dark embers

With the cold at your feet.

A saint in the past

Made sure love would last

So now we give roses and sweets.

Barrenness season

Frigid reminder of loss

Temporarily …
