In Memoriam

High notes ring softly

In a repetitive rhythm

Encouraging the bass to bellow.


Together they play

In perfect harmony

In perfect cacophony

A welcoming sound

I’ve known for years.


The dependent treble falters…

Then frenzies until it unexpectedly ceases-

An angelic absence

Leaving the bass notes to calmly tremble,

A deep

Resounding

Heartbeat.


A familiar song

I’ll never forget.


For my Grandmother,

You’ll always be in our hearts

5/1/15

Waiting

The sound of metal colliding rings in my ears

And all I see is white.

The stretcher, the walls,

The bright light calling to me

As I scream for you.

 

Lying five feet away,

You’re so close

But these walls separating us

Keep me from whispering your name…

From trying to hold your once warm body

In my decaying arms.

 

I’ve lost all hope of being with you

As I lie here, waiting for an eternity to pass

Inside a plot under a headstone.

Celebrated family. Mother’s day with my brother (left), and went on a vacation with my boyfriend as an early birthday present to him (right).

Mother's Day                           me and my beau

Had a lot of exciting news about the quails. We started seeing mama bird more frequently. Here she is pictured lying on her eggs, and soon after, they hatched!

Unfortunately the dogs found them before we did. But nobody was hurt! Sadie got a hold of one of the babies, but the baby bird got away safely. I also took a peek at their hide out in the backyard!

I’ve been seeing more and more baby quail even well into the summer months. This is the most recent one that was caught straggling behind it’s family. If we’re keeping score, it’s Quail: 3, Dogs: 0.
