For Sadje’s What Do You See https://lifeafter50forwomen.com/2020/05/11/what-do-you-see-29-11-may-2020/

 

’twas just few summers ago
when snowflakes miraculously fell
unto my skin like little solid raindrop
snowflakes should never fall in summer
but it did, that summer morning

 

from little snowflakes to snowfall
my dreams of buidling a snowman
did happen, in a summer morning
when snowflakes should never fall
but it did, that summer morning

 

snow and cold in summer, not ideal
but i built my first snowman, lovely
then the second one, cheerful
and then the third one, beautiful
finally, the fourth one, could look like you

forecast calls for near zero temperatures and cool weather for the week, ’twas odd
but it did, snowflakes even fell that summer
and i built snowman in May
totally and absolutely odd

 

just as you left, without saying goodbye
that summer morning when the
sun should be shining and the days
should be hotter still you left,
as snowflakes fell thatΒ  summer morn’

 

P.S

In loving memory of my beloved father.

  3. Beautiful poem Mich.. And sometimes miracles in snow show us that like the snow flakes each are unique and special.. Beautiful and poignant in memory of your Dad… And yes here in the UK today it is cold enough to snow today…. A bitter wind and sleet in the wind this morning as I took a short walk… But it made me feel alive…
    Much love dear Mich..
    Reading the comments I had no idea you were not yet home… Sending well wishes and love and hope the restrictions soon relax for your safe return.. ❀ ❀ ❀

      1. I still miss him. But I think if I was not still in high school when it happened. If he was old when it happened. Or if there had been a long illness before he died the loss would be different.

  4. Lost love ones… warm and cold memories mix. I glance at the walls of my home, the photos – most gone – but I keep them as a reminder to myself as well as those who are still here – especially the young ones. The should know where they come from. They don’t have to bear all the sad memories, but the truth can be told gently.

    Stay safe. ((Hugs))

    1. Thank you so much Jules.😊

      Losing a love one is very sad more so if it happens unexpectedly. That’s why i guess we should always bear in mind to show our love ones how much we love them consistently cos we never know what happens next.

      Stay safe too in there..

      1. Even when you know death is around the corner… when it happens the mixture of relief and sadness are a unique weight. Especially as we age… and enter our golden years – we need to treasure each day πŸ˜€
