My mother

my mother
barely converses
……the tangle
of bougainvillea 
has spread to her mind

Ribbons, Winter 2014

My poor mother now, a fading blossom in need of special care.

  1. Eloquent, tender and poignant. My sympathies. I have seen other families go through this and it is profoundly difficult.

  2. This takes strength and courage which I'm sure you have. I live in fear that my husband or I may go this way.

  3. Thanks, Jenny, Wendy, and Adelaide.
    Not sure how much courage I have (me too - afraid of the same thing).
