Poems For My Parents

100_4989

Taking turns
Letting each other go
Only to learn again
How love grows,
Mother

*
love for you
became her care
until she joined you there
grief gives way to fields and wind
and now I hear your voice again

*

For Harold and Enola Borgh

I took the photos of tulips from a store in Winter 2016.
