Afternoons with Mom


Afternoons with Mom

Like the ivy

that entwines

the old

butternut tree,

we sit nestled

in vines of easy silence

Leaves in woodland, Maryland

until the tendril of a story

reaches up and uncurls

Ferns uncurling, Acadia NP, Maine

and we laugh a leaf

into song.

Lupine, Acadia NP, Maine
