taking in your soft light

the small bones of your hands with skin stretched thin

the hands that guided me

Something blue

I awoke this morning to my mind calling out the word "mom". Not a frantic voice, more inquisitive. But it literally pushed me into awareness at 5:45, the longest I've slept in a week.

Reality

sinking

makes me feel

small and lost

hopeless

this and that

what to do

I thought I had more time

more time

the tests show nothing positive

as if her body has turned on itself

and the…

Gardening 101, working on our A+

Not sure that I've ever had a major success as a gardener. And this is so far the closest I've come to a well tended garden. Gardening is a commitment! The garden plot is at my beloved's and has been a fun summer project. He waters and soaks the soil, it's very dry and blazing hot, I'm sure we would have had major die off without, and it makes pulling weeds much…
