little lamb


chime in
with your majesty,
cut through the thick august air,
scolding my thoughts
as though a tear
was wrong...
shed for a little lamb
a full century & a half gone,
set among roses
trunk thick with time...
the past smells possible
& close by
heavy with sorrow.
momma, your name is carved
trickled soft by rains...
it saddens my heart
to see your gift
stone cold
reminding me of our
present postures apart...
i am trying to learn
what this means
to feel your love from where
& live without your soft hugs.
