GARDEN OF GRACE
(a shadorma)

Familiar
shades of blue and green
dance across
the ripples
of her mind; she grasps onto
fading memories.

    1. Thank you so much, Mosk! Seeing your name pop up here felt like a hug. So…your “sending of love & hugs” was a success. ❤ I'll keep writing….you too, K?

    1. Thanks, Pamela. I participated in fundraising efforts for Alzheimer’s Association “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” this past Saturday…this has been something on my mind all month as it is Alzheimer’s Awareness month. I’m glad you enjoyed the poem. ❤
