In the center is a light post with electrical wires coming off it, there are others in the photo but not as prominently displayed. Looks like a suspended cross I thought.

POPS

Westinghouse Vocational School (2)

This past week has been weird. I found myself on more than one occasion reminding myself to go see how my father was doing. This past October marked the second anniversary of his death.  I couldn’t look at him lying in that coffin. That was a conscious choice. I wonder, if I had, would I now be having these very much alive thoughts of him?  Or would my thoughts be blunted by the stark reality of him lying there, not looking like himself. Who knows.  Well pops, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, you are clearly in my head. And it is nice to have an ‘alive’ vision of you outside of that box.

Peace!

Babies

In response to DP Challenge: Source of Anxiety

(A little late, actually started it then when it was first posted but it turned into a rant, so here it is from a calmer place.)

BABIES

baby having baby

childhood eroded

early motherhood imploded

high risk- squared

 premature adulthood

and despair

vacated prenatal care

thwarted by  anomalies

 broadsided by inability to cope

five months revealed

four more can’t be concealed

childhood eroded

WINTER DUSK

IMG_1558falling winter dusk
open spaces morph into
now solitary places

triplets sleep amidst
winters’ slumber bathe in last light
soon steeped into night

dusk a good respite
cycle rejuvenates lifes’
bounty for spring yonder
