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.
