Photographer Unknown
What my mother left me
was not dancing shoes
or diamond rings
or bad luck with men.
It was the way she stood
so straight
barely reaching my shoulder
but tall
on days when life
bends most people low
and that quickstep of hers
forward always
to music only she could imagine.
(from my book: Saturday Nights at the Crystal Ball)
Happy Mother's Day, Mom, wherever you are...I miss you.
And thanks, Laurie and David, for giving me the joys of being
mom--and grandma to all those short people. I love you...
