the traffic home
from the hospital
winter rainbow

 

violins
at his remembrance service
that old portrait

 

autumn leaves scattering
my younger self skips
to school

 

reindeer antlers
on the car behind me
my red nose

 

prickly pine cone
she doesn’t return
the hug

 

the name left off
the gravestone
her dog’s ashes

 

weeds after rain
a mailbox filled
with medical bills
