I love the second part in particular, as that speaks of my relationship with "Mary" my mum and of how I loved her yet always felt that there was a "crater" in the moon she handed me!Great post Dana.
Your infinite sadness. What a line, Dana! This is filled with sadness and yet there is hope.
'craters and all' - such a poignant line, a great poem, Dana:)
Beautiful writing, that's such a great final line. Bravo.
Lovely. So much emotion packed into so few words.
Thanks guys - sometimes my Mom dreams are very bittersweet...
Somehow I just knew it was a Mom dream. How blessed you are to have seen her again. I'm still waiting for mine to visit me while I slumber.
My mom dreams are too. Loved the piece. You have a beautiful heart!
Oh, the last stanza. Poignant and wistful and yet, very compelling.
yep absolutely, the last stanza! wow. I'm sorry about your mom :( Such a beautiful, gentle poem though.
Lovely dreamy post Dana.You're beautiful, inside and out.Phil
Love this joy! And the imagery of that last stanza.
A touching poem, AND with a Buffy reference! You can't get more perfect than that.
I know, right? She slipped that Buffy reference right by me, served up as it was with the Thomas Wolfe theme.
is it just me or do your poems keep getting better and better? Love the ending again here
Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
