To the Day

To the Day


Six years ago

began the last month

of my mother's life


I get up from bed

steaming with memory

of that time in our lives


My life begins now

as I go to the kitchen

thinking of pancakes

and coffee 

with cream and sugar

the way she liked it


Headed towards 68

I've become 5

walking

into the livingroom

of the old house

with it's green wool

beneath my feet


Mother reads the paper

on a loveseat

by the floor to ceiling

bay window

her cup sitting 

on the round

mahogany table


I pick up her cup

she turns a page


I turn a page

to begin my life

with coffee
