Remembrance ~

We must find a way 
to remember 
summer in winter 
the ocean in the desert 
the breath of mountains 
behind four walls 
the tiniest good fortune 
in the midst of tears _
 ~~~~ooo~~~~ooo~~~~ooo~~~~

(my sweet, gentle, Golden Jake had knee surgery on Wednesday 
 he is having a difficult time and healing is going to be a hard and long process
 I will be a full-time nurse to Jake over the next 2 months and I will not be posting  over that time ... I shall be back to regular posting around the middle of October ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~ be well, dear blogging friends ~ xo )


Rose and Jake are the best of friends 
Rose was very sad when we picked him up after surgery ~

  2. I will keep you and Jake in my prayers, dear Margie, and your poem is fantastic. Many people take Vitamin D, especially in winter, due to the "downs" they experience from the lack of sunlight.

    Your poem is beautiful and sunshine in my heart, as I am sure, in many other hearts.
