Grief And Acceptance

Grief And Acceptance
is a quiet place for posts
around this theme.

I wrote this new poem on January 23, 2016:

another year
has passed since
my mother’s passing
I sit and quietly read
a book she would like too

for Enola M. Borgh
1917 – 2004


These are examples of earlier poems:

country cemetery
trumpet vines
growing taller
than the gravestones

(Published in Time Of Singing, 2012)


in early May
tiny bird sings
on the branch
of budding lilacs


evergreens grow
in the country cemetery
I don’t know how it can be
that love keeps growing
all these years
only ever-grateful
that love does grow


Thank you and blessings,

Ellen Grace Olinger
