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.


Two American Sentences of 17-syllables each.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.


  3. 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.


  4. 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

    • 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.


  5. 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.
