We're Just Brown
Grandma’s brown knuckles crinkled
As she gently peeled the heirloom
Potatoes, discarding the brown-
Skinned strips into the garbage
Bin. She was at home here, alive
FETAL POSITION IN THE ER
death, heartbreak, my child,
Broken but disbelieving, we wait
for any doctor to say it’s just blood
as the gray man greens, throws-
up in triage. A Goth...
Dark Angels of Highgate
Enough Angelina, drop the bouquet of harebells.
The flowers wilt as your graying hands stiffen. See, how grave
is our newborn son. We gift him...
THE COMMITMENT OF TWO PARENTS
character, child, hope, love,
Choosing that faithful woman to fulfill this fate,
she'll conceive a healthy baby with a loud scream,
a sweet cry so innocent piercing air and soul,
The Old House
Dim light shines through the widows of the old house
long since empty, where only dust dances in the air
and a lone mouse scurries across its...
The father has left the family,
To chart new territories somewhere
So the mother looks to God for strength
To bring up her little girl...
confusion, lonely, lost, sorrow,
I live in an old forgotten castle,
Engulfed in a vast blanket of shadow,
Where without reason, there rustles the leaves
Evermore by the cold clandestine wind.
My Mother Jean, A Maverick
faith, home, mother, red,
Alberta “Jean,” the different one was she
since her birth and among her family.
This redhead born of parents with dark hair
had felt herself an odd plain...
MIRACLE AT DAWN
caregiving, childhood, confusion, daughter,
No mother would fill up her eyes with tears of woman...
if it weren't for God performing a miracle at dawn,
as she cried out in joy...
Joy to world within
happinessgarden, joy, love, seasons,
Omnipresent is Joy
Barefoot morn walk in garden
Soothing sight of silky blanket of grass
Morning dew globules sparkling
As if bathing Blades in freshness
Greenery splashed on earths...
angst, caregiving, childhood, death,
Like a penny, lost and worthless, woman
mother, and buried within the origin pit, dark
she brought me like a Jezebel into her life of mourning
Stay At Home Mom
daughter, family, life, mother,
I spend my time changing diapers
Wiping tiny faces and drying little tears
My days are filled with giggles and wails
Nights are symphonies of snuggles and hugs
The Heart of Poverty
anniversary, caregiving, childhood, daughter,
Once upon a time, mother was gifted new life.
Reformed, reborn the second child to poverty,
through the coldness of a Maine winter came beauty.
THE POSSESSIONS OF A YOUNGER AGE
adventure, childhood, family, husband,
Every boy has his toys,
and each girl her dolls;
and as they grow they are put away where light can't enter:
there in that closet, which often...
Gone Was The Night
angst, devotion, faith, hope,
I saw the noble kind young girl last night—
The Virgin's robe was blue; her dress was Light.
“Hail, Mary, full of grace,” I prayed to her;
TO BE TAKEN INTO ETERNITY
happy, happy, me,
Having been born in legendary Italy,a country
as old as the stones of the Via Appia,
made me recall the fiery image of Attila...
