Honoring Mothers -

Today, I am going to attempt the Cascade Trail with Karena, to honor her mother and my own. Her mother died last Monday, January 23rd. Mine died February 18th, 2005. I want to honor the time of my mother's passing, beginning now. My grieving process for her was interrupted with these health problems of my own. I want to return to helping her pass, even, though, I know she is delight in light at play.

This is my offering poem for my mother today.



          I sit among the stones,

          still and silent,

          spacious as a field

          of Arctic terns,


          pole to pole -


          the sea in me is vast

          the waves

          forming and reforming,

          opening and closing,

          like the sail

          upon the mast


Amazing!  I hear a tapping at my window.  Two chickadees are trying to enter.
I choose to image them, as my mother and father, letting me know they are here.
The imagination is ours to choose.  I choose to feel my parents close, tapping at my window, little Chickadees, in flight with ease!
