My mom

I think she knows a thing
about living, of love, a generous line
She builds shelters from sand,
mixes sugar with water for humming
bird wine. In her home she sets
shells out for wayward crustaceans. She 
builds lean-tos of palm fronds and plantains, 
sea glass and chards; she photographs 
chalice blooms. Her cupboard doors
are lined with fingerprint dreams - 
maps of unchartered seas, blue
and green.  Yet the wind finds
its way in, through louvered 
screens. It hides by the bookshelves
counting pennies and seeds. 
Each night, still she sets 
out her intention, shakes out 
the sheets, and sighs 
into the wind.

Remembering my Mother

Now when I think of you
I remember the last years 
You helped me to recover 
A place I never could have reached
Showing me the true love of my mother
No matter how hard I pushed away
By my side you would stay

You helped through my hardest time
Forgiving my life's mistakes
Devoted yourself to my recovery 
We grew closer than I ever remember
We had moments together
That will last forever

I still can't believe 
When I recovered
The fatal illness
You were diagnosed 
That would take you from us
But my memories will never be taken 

As I pass the cemetery walls
To see your final resting place
You will always be on my mind
Kneeling here I think... 
Are you watching over me
From someplace far beyond

through his mom he has come to know me 
and my disability.I couldn't get off the toilet in his house as there were no hand rails
I asked his mom if the young man 20,would be uncomfortable giving me a pull up
she said if I was ok with it he would be too.Nick came to the door and flexed his muscles
to pull this large woman up,i saw  such pride in his moms heart sank having to
have to ask him for the help.As my visit continued with his mom in the coffee shop.Nick
must have called 20 times to ask if I needed my eyes filled with pride to know
such a fine young man when so much is wrong with the youth today.God bless America,God
Bless Nick
