Happy Birthday Mother
Midsummer celebration
Through sodden tears
And quiet lamentation
the longest day of the year
  miss you, Mother dear.

nebulous skies
Solstice cuckolded
mourning long life

daylight masked,  ever weary
shadows midsummer`s eve

longest day
exhales last slow breath
cicada cries

  1. Friend, we are feeling this, too. My husband’s mom passed one day after we moved out of our home of 21 years. Yesterday we watched a movie that had a scene of an elderly lady dying. My big, strong husband melted into a puddle of tears. She passed less than two years ago. Hugs to you across the miles.


    1. Oh my! Janice your comment touched me so much. A colleague was telling me her grandfather of 76 still weeps on his mother`s birthday. I understand now how my mother and her siblings were still weeping every Christmas even twenty years later.
