An Extraordinary Woman


To my sister Marcie

You were the epitome of a true Southern lady.
Your hospitality reigned warm and generous 
as a summer's day, guiding you the consummate hostess.

You played life's roles with grace and compassion.
Strength and dignity kept you anchored and
confidence validated your presence.

You embraced family and friends in a circle of love
giving hugs magically lifting spirits with your smile
binding us to you for a lifetime.

The gray mist of illness vanishes softening
your features in blessed peace.
In the distance a church bell tolls, 
golden music transports your soul to heaven.
Tears stain my face.

Haiku

morning doves cooing
rain trickling through forest canopy
symphony at dawn

Haiku


snowy mountain pines
cradled in winter's playground
high country grandeur

The Old Lady's Treasure

As she sleeps, life's segments are reclaimed
through transparent dreams.
In loving arms her nascent beauty glows
lovely as a pearl.
Childhood sparkles with innocence
brilliant as a diamond.
Adolescence swirls with self-discovery
iridescent as an opal.
Adulthood radiates with passion
vibrant as a ruby.
Maturity unites strength and elegance
majestic as a sapphire.
Old age bestows wisdom and leisure
regal as an emerald.
Precious gems in her gilded jewel box
she bequeaths them with love.
