Poems: Memories

streets I used to travel
to go to Mom’s house
empty stores here and there
with signs of recovery
peaceful memories

(2012)

holiday lights
in Port Washington
memories
of driving back north
from my mother’s home
all those Sundays
years ago

(2014)

sitting at my blog
grateful for friends
first snowflakes
gently fall
and rest on the roof

(2012 – still grateful)

years
generations
stories

told
in many
ways

how love
may change
yet endures

(2014)

Christmas carnations
in the vase
that used to hold
fresh flowers for Mom
 
blessings
each in turn
return
to bless us


(2015)

mild December day
pheasants in the fields
apples still on some trees
poems to write
many books yet to read

(2011)
