More lines from a thank you note…
Thanks again for breeze stirred ginkgo leaves
adrift in silence to the sunlit sidewalk;
and for a yellow lawn.
for twin cousins who come each year with great aunt Lilly;
weighted down with pecan pie bread pudding;
with oysters mosca and peanut butter cake.
Thanks for another day,
for time to listen.
thanks for knowing to sit still and listen.
for baby sisters who look like dad
who looked like great grandmother.
