bessie

Posted on: April 2, 2013

her eyes blue like cold lake superior
hair white and sparse; every curl so precious
age covered her face
like a burka

what’s that, aunt bessie?
a flower bed

how beautiful – to sleep on overgrown
lilies of the valley
and
dandelions

alone in the big white house
on county road five

i miss her.
