The Year in Review


my momma
died on Presidents’ Day
5 p.m.
Virginia time
I grieve
Sanna Jean
muscles ache
bone pain
trouble drawing breath

she is
in boats
in caves
with me
in dreams

by the sea
our heels dig into wet sand

her first born
a rope
of love

chokes us
green eyes
hers greener

oh yes momma
I will

I will know the difference
in a hundred years

    I think of her so often. I remember that look of hers,that Elizabeth Taylor look, of hers about life, love, how to live, how not to live, and I too grieve for her and for the love she felt for life.

    She was robbed!
