Used to Be Home #fires #California #poetry

natural beauty cruel embroiled waves obscured by flames * a tricylcle all alone picture – a melted phone can’t reach home For those of you who are in California our prayers are ongoing.

Lens of Yesterdays #poetry #memories

  “Who is that?” My daughter asks as she filters through 100 year old snapshots. “I never heard their story. I was only a child when I looked at these photos last.” “Which side of the family are they from?” She looks for any family likenesses. “They look like dad’s family. I’m glad these didn’tContinue reading “Lens of Yesterdays #poetry #memories”

Freedom Cancelled #poetry #alzheimers

Alzheimers the hidden treasure #caregivers #alzheimers #haibun

More than forty years ago,I took care of my first Alzheimer’s patient. Back then we called a patient confused. The trade marks were the same: little by little the mind ebbs and the memory recedes. I have learned much as I have looked through the window of an elderly person’s life. There is a storeContinue reading “Alzheimers the hidden treasure #caregivers #alzheimers #haibun”

The Marketplace of Life #poetry #lifeinUganda
