    Default First Spring Without You, Mother (CTG)

    First Spring Without You, Mother


    ADVERTISING




    After our harsh Maryland winter, I drive around
    the lakes of Homeland: Houdini-like, daffodils peek
    yellow from the bank; two Canada geese drift

    princely on the water-lily pool (they mate
    for life, they say); I showed you the same two geese
    last Spring on one of our last outings from

    your nursing home: how much "nursing", how much "home"?
    Were draconian measures really on the table? Would I really
    have smothered you, Mother? I considered driving us both

    into Loch Raven to escape the rising tide
    of medical bills; finally, instead, the splendid release
    and pain of your death -- God's golden handshake!

    Grief and life itself would not be as they are without their 'if's.
    Leisure
    pleasure
    treasure
    are without.
