Evergreen Autumns


Motherhood memories

framed in faded fall foliage

stay forever green in me

and bring me messages––


younger, naive eyes,

somehow knowing,

look to me as a reminder now

that time keeps moving,


and I try not to count the moments

we could have made better,

for forward is the direction of

and lesson from nature,


and each year of these passing seasons

brings more (numbered) moments

we can make evergreen

for we are never too old

to catch

snowflakes and leaves.


Don’t Blink
