Good Morning!!

The sun is shining, this cold wintery day.   I am feeling exuberant about the approach of Christmas, and cannot believe it is only one week away.  When did that happen?

On Tuesday, a beautiful friend opened an umbrella to discover there was a heart cut out of the cheerful fabric.   Here is my poem to her and her mother-in-law.  I have decided that when I die, I am going to have bought colorful umbrellas for my friends, and each one will be missing a heart-shaped piece of fabric, so I can look down and give them heart-shaped kisses when it rains.

The First Rain


She opens the umbrella left by her mother-in-law when she died.

There is a heart shape cut out of the fabric, a big one.

We  contemplate what would motivate such action, until, one day,

I see her mother-in-law looking down through the heart when it rains,

parting the tears with her kisses,

shaped like hearts.
