A door is opened
some call it a prison
I am refreshed
you are there
dressed in yellow
your face lights up
moments float like petals
come to mind
I take off my uniform
reminded of a perfect day
in a world
Alzheimers is a not allowed
Simultaneity is today’s Napowrimo topic
The Definition of Simultaneity is the relation between two events assumed to be happening at the same time in a frame of reference. According to Einstein’s theory of relativity,simultaneity is not an absolute relation between events; what is simultaneous in one frame of reference will not necessarily be simultaneous in another.
The silver ringed the moon
uniform, shiny squares line my brain
“it’s going to rain tomorrow”
the empty line was endless
what an unusual glow on my ring finger
monochrome seems to work
“my mind never makes sense anymore”
stars won’t get in tonight’s way
It’s too dark in my mind
all because of the silver ringed moon
Poetry doesn’t always make sense but sometimes it helps clarify the questions in your mind.
This poem is written in honor to the Alzheimer’s patients whom I dearly love and respect.
shy once more
sweet are the years’ memories
what’s his name?
one red one black
yesterday’s thoughts blow by
whose shoes are those?
Sharing this set with Ronovan Writes the theme this week being Shy and Sweet.
Alzheimers is a tough disease that robs the present. Walk on yesterday’s path with these folks and try to find the daisies still left to enjoy.

I looked today
What did you say
Did you make a sound
“Honey I love you”
I heard her say
With all we’d been through
My memories at times seem so far away
After speaking with a dear friend whose wife is captive in Alzheimer’s, I was inspired to write this Fiction for him, for her
Thanks to Monkey Man who weekly hosts our flash fiction in 160. Amazing what people can do with a few words. Join us
like a gentle whisper
a chasm away
as a continent
space nor time
to feel the pounding
in your chest
unable to give
breath of life
to be mine
day you slipped away
Go to the G-Man and read the fabulous Flash Fiction on that site.

This poem is dedicated to a dear friend, Jean, who is suffering late stages of Alzheimer’s Disease.
“We don’t love you less though your memories of us are poor. You will always shine a light into our hearts.”
I awoke with a dream of you in my eyes
watching you took my breath away
I wanted you to be mine
I never grew tired of watching you
everyday to awake
the word “I love you” on my lips
knowing you were mine
I didn’t mind that your hair turned frosty gray
or that wrinkles lined your face
you were still mine
I visit you daily my dear
there’s but a shadow of our love
I still cherish your smile vacant tho it may be
tho you don’t know it
you are still mine
Thank you Allegra Ricci for the poignant picture
