Mela & Me

Hopeful’s the wee dog,

That sloppy me will drop crumbs

Waits with regal stance.

Thank you Pat Fitspatrick for giving me this book long ago. It became one of my favorites!

Little Women is a novel, movie and a stage drama
About four little girls and their worried mama
‘Cause Papa is away fighting in the Civil War,
Since he never returns & comes through the door,
I assume he died, & they never again see the man they adore.

 

 

Little Women

Reflections of Yesteryear

Reflections of Yesteryear

Today, I received a package from my Aunt Gloria filled with memories and treasures, some never I had seen,

Some were of Grandma and Grandpa, who I never really had the chance to know, still married they were,

 Photos black and white of a smallish home, it didn’t seem quite big enough for eight active kids and teens,

Inside were also photos of a handsome young man going off to defend our country, leaving the cold, Burr.

 

I wonder what he thought as he left his family and young lady behind for California’s sunny beaches and the bugle calls,

Though he returned two years later to marry his young lady and take her with him in his gleaming blue car.

A “Just married” sign hung on the back of it as he took her to a new life at the oceanside and seagulls

I wonder what she thought as she traded green, rolling hills for palm trees and mountains tall and far.

 

As I looked through the photos, there was a card written almost 25 years after for birthday,

On the back was a note, reflecting life’s changes, he told his dad that he was going to marry a new wife,

The hope, happiness and joy felt by the young couple, so long ago, was not meant to stay,

The photos and treasures tell a story, and they are snapshots in time, reflections and intersections of life.

Haiku PRESS AND TOUCH

Mom and I @ the age of 17, Senior photos

GOD BLESS YOU MOM

Pressed my hand to hers,

Knew I would see her no more,

Our last moment, touch

 

Pressed Mom to me, We

Rocked in the chair of my youth

 Was a dream, our touch.
