smooshed & wet…

A lovely lavender rose, I planted in honor of my departed Mother. It didn’t do so well the first couple years, but this Summer it has finally settled in and shown its beauty.

In Remembrance…Happy Mother’s Day

photography-Mother's Day-cemetery-SwittersBIt can be awkward if you haven’t been there in a while. At first, I need to orient myself to the right marker. Then I gaze down at the names. I recall the faces. I study the dates…my how long it has been. I look up at the clouds and think about the image, the picture…but seriously, why did I come here? I look back down. I silently utter words of endearment, but they are awkward after all because I haven’t uttered them in a while.  I purposely refocus in earnest and tell them I love them. I give the Mother’s Day greeting and I give a heart felt thank you. I scrape some tried, dead grass off the marker. I walk back to my rig, feeling more fragile, more vulnerable. I miss them.
