The word: Chapter


I miss my mother every day
she told me once
but now that chapter is completed
And this new one of mine
still fresh
but bearing the same title
could continue for decades
until such time my daughter might have a turn

In the big picture
our chapters are brief—
a day, an hour, a minute
more likely a millisecond
But they muster in us
such longings
such exquisite pain
such love

The word: Crestfallen

Her Face …

… said it all
The crest had fallen
She was sinking rapidly
the sun already out of sight
her shoulders collapsing
chest hollow
It would take a miracle

Any one of you could be that miracle
a simple smile
an invitation to hello
her crest could rise again
