I Am Alive Still!

I am Alive Still…
                 ….  Endless wait

Mature blooms emptying
nectar on friendly butterflies,
Juicy dregs await-  again
ready to decant…..

Wistfully seeking, hoping
Diffidently, a caring touch
Reinforcing belief that
Light is flickering not done ….

Not ready yet to be
pressed in memory 
pages of family album
Fondly remembered
Occasionally ….


Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law, and
must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour of duration.
D. H. Lawerence
I saw an elderly woman wearing a sweatshirt
with Guess on it.   I said, “eighty two?”  charles mooney

(note: after a visit to Senior Ctr  
this is what came to mind!! 
I was thrilled by their feistiness
yet some were simply waiting for a friendly hello
a glance a bit of acknowledgement…
