Watching Thyra



Watching Thyra 


There sparkling in a beam of
sunlight, lifting her anchor –
a shift, close to a mother’s heart
a phrase, here and there drifts
into range – floating images waft
and connect coalescing in fragrant fertile layers
the portent of the future ribboning to horizonless yield
Sparkling in that mystic beam of sunlight
Crystal tear drop holds the world on a lash-blink
soaring together 
Graduation-Day-Love

  2. Wonderful tribute to Brenda and her graduating daughter. And I agree with Viv, the last line makes the poem and the relationship.

  3. Can only imagine that feeling a Mother feels watching their kids graduation - that lifting of the anchor to move into "horizonless yield". I could feel these words coming straight from your heart.

  4. That sublime feeling of success by the parent as their child reaches such maturity is overwhelming and you have captured this so well.

  5. And what might that phrase be that's drifting into range? Oh, the possibilities are endless, aren't they? :)
