I do not think of you reposing in the earth of a cemetery, quiet and still; I see you working in your garden among the flowers humming a happy tune; I think of us together walking through shops and markets in town and I think of us in the kitchen sipping tea ___________________________ December 17, 2021 Poetry/Free Verse/In Memory of My Mother Copyright Protected, ID 12-1413-543-17 All Rights Reserved, 2021, Constance La France Written for the Standard contest, Bite Size Poem #30 sponsor, Line Gauthier, HM, Judged 12/29/2021

Congrats on this winning work with such sweet memories. We don't think of them buried but alive because they are alive just in another place. Sara

Jenna, thanks for the visit and comment. I miss my mom so much as Christmas gets closer. She loved Christmas, the cooking, the decorating, the hosting, the gift giving, the music, everything Christmas ~ love and serenity _Constance
