The first day

my mother did not see

dawned grey and heavy

with dew.

But still the finch greeted me

with its joy at waking to

the new.

    Not a recent loss for me, but still, this one hit me where I live.

    • Love to you. Some days grief comes crashing. I find I have to accept the wave as an acknowledge of loss, feel the love it represents with a deep breath, wipe my eyes, and carry on still 5 years after my dad’s death, and here we are with Mom’s starting all over again.
