and when she left usto create her own lines of demarcation...did it for me.
smiles. this makes me think of children leaving home...and the things they leave behind...
Spiritual influence trumps physical presence every time. When they are gone we do mourn though but the pain wanes as we adopt the blessings they gave like lilies and laughter. Nice one.
I agree with Brian, made me think of my children as they each headed down the road to a new life. Very sweet and simple, which is the way I like my poetry.
This picture gives me delighted shivers. THen I read the poem. sigh
Such an imagination. Just wonderful. Kudos.

Loved this beautiful poem so much - so full of love - and I especially love "our love for tiger lilies and laughter, gifted in a blue jar". Wonderful poem.
Two pretty pictures.

It's like going away to college, and leaving those damned parents behind....**sigh....alright let me stop with the daydreams lol. Lovely piece my friend!!:: goes to pick tiger lilies ::
That is one significant line - loved the poem.
gifted in a blue jarHow many different things can go into such a jar! The sky is the limit...
This is every thing I love in a piece of writing - it tells a story, opens up the imagination to another time and space and leaves one wanting just one stanza more.
