Bloomin' Mushrooms

The mushroom is the elf of plants
At evening it is not;
At morning in a truffled hut
It stops upon a spot

Loses and Renewals

Blaze (b. September 21, 2001; d. May 18, 2012)
When Blaze died in May, it broke our hearts.

Apollo (b. June 25, 2012)
Apollo is helping to mend them. What a joyful gift he is!

Memorial Day Honoring War Dogs

While I'm not a proponent of war, I so honor and appreciate those who serve our country, including Man's Best Friend.

Mothers Are the Gardeners

 Mothers are the gardeners
of wind-blown wild flowers.
They water them with happy tears,
Happy with them many years,
Even as the hours
Ring with sweet, sad melodies
Sighing through their bowers.
 (I have this poem in my book of special, saved poems, but there is no author listed.)
