in the moment – September 24


purple crocheted

pullover cap

crowns the now

balded head,

the smile and

persona fully there.


old friend across

a room, daughters

on either side,

reminiscing about

kids and hopes and



while the stark option

lies out present, it

does not oppress.


simply accepted, as

Francis would say,

sister death.


we all smile and chat

and enjoy one another


in the moment.
