the healing promise
of purple coneflowers is
ever present in

my mother’s garden – love, love,
and more love, bringing them home

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: presence

day after day, love

staying magical

we are together
until we are not –

in one another’s
presence – stripped
to only lifetimes

past, present,
future – enough
to swallow
whole, racing
to metabolize
one another’s
presence,
happy to be
nine-tenths full

tied to the anchor

an escape – hours sprint by
