Skipping Mother’s Day

Marlen Kaye 1960

Mom. 1960.

Skipping Mother’s Day
as a motherless child with
memories of love.


Innocence was lost
the day you passed and knowledge
of yearning began.


One more day with you
all I ask the Universe…
and I still remain.


Mother and Son

Mom and I. Bagnell Dam, Lake of the Ozarks. Missouri. 1967.
