for Twiglet #144

Two Thoughts on the Anniversary of My Mother’s Birthday

Her broken whispers
were so close to earth that I
imagined bluebells.

I gave her flowers
as she rode into the stars.
Couldn’t help smiling.

  3. May her memories be for blessings…
    As we age the people we love linger more in our memories than close at hand.

    I remembered the loss of my father – 19 years this month.

  7. Wistful and heartfelt; very sweet. My wife is from Texas. Visiting there for the first time, in Spring, the bluebells are planted along every highway, and the results are dazzling.

  10. Your American sentences have choked me up, Misky. I remember my mum’s broken whispers. They also made me smile! When I was little, we used to walk in the local bluebell wood; my mum would love this poem too.

  13. I smiled too imagining your Mom riding into the stars clutching a handful of bluebells. So tender and sweet, Misky. Um, what is the Twiglet reference if you don’t mind.

  16. Hey Misky — Hi poet!. Wanted to let you know I am “temporarily” sightless in my right eye from a retinal disease. It is a struggle fir me to write, but I will still wrote my pieces, going very slowly. Reading at any length is extremely difficult, and causes painful headache — so wanted to say thanks for contributing to OLN. But I won’t be able to read what you wrote, yet I wanted to visit. I spent a little time writing this best I could with one eye, i copied it, and I am pasting it in here to say hi. Got an operation coming up in about a week when the infection is down. Hopefully things will get back to normal.thanks, Rob

    1. My very best wishes to you for a successful procedure, and a speedy recovery. Please don’t strain your eyesight for the sake of a blog. When you have thoughts that you’d usually write down, grab your phone and record your thoughts for later. I also have sight issues in my left eye, so you’re not alone out there in the ether. Take care, and rest your eyes.

    a field of bluebells is magical (I used to live in San Antonio, TX) I love the image of her holding a bouquet of them as she rises toward the stars.
