The Clover





Momma screams in silence
for the granddaughters
that filled her heart
and these rooms
with laughter


The pain of separation
is too much to bear
so she lies in the clover
and goes to sleep with
pennies on her eyes

  4. Heart-wrenching ... and lovely. Like Christ, some of the most beautiful scenes in life are the most painful to gaze upon. Thank you for these moving words.
