moonflowers highlights...December 2010

Post by moonflower » Mon Jan 10, 2011 4:41 pm

hello to all! :hello: well the new year has arrived!..there were no postings for the month of December in the Tribute forum, so i browsed through the back pages and found one of my very favorites on page i am posting it as the highlight for the month :grin: (there is some absolutely remarkable talent on the back pages!) .. :grin: ... :grin:


Almost Lost....written by debab

Like a child again
almost lost,
scenes reverse as my mother squints
with one eye, searching
for the elusive single
vision, my face.
"I would like to go home"
as her eyes meet mine
slipping slowly off
the security of the seat
socks falling off her feet.
It's best to shush now
catch a sense of better
what's possible now; hard work
patience, maybe a miracle, ignoring the
malfeseance of an embolus that coasted
and carreened to a stop
in her brain stem's smallest arteriole.
Incidental Accidental
cause and effect
I help her sip a little cool water
and it slides crookedly
out the left corner,
a weakness that leads us
to link hands in truth and terror.


well, my heartfelt thanks to all who browse or post :grin: ..i invite everyone to visit during January! :hello: :grin:
inside each soul there is music...let the music play..
