August begins

August begins
and I remember
poems

rarely at your grave —
geranium blooms freely
on your workshop stool

autumn leaves
the caregiver finds time
to rest

yard work

water
for the begonia

and hosta petals
on the lawn

small vase of daylilies
for the sunroom

goldenrod grows tall
above the windowsill

bees, butterflies, and
hummingbirds visit
by the windows

calendar
by my computer
with all kinds of notes
handwritten cards sent
health care appointments
and record of progress
work continues

I look back
and I look forward
blessings of today
