This is a tribute to my mom and her sisters.  And to all our departed moms and aunts who are missed.  

This poem reminds me of their lives. 

They seemed to all take off
at once.  Aunt Grace
whose kidneys closed shop,
Cousin Rose who fed sugar
to diabetes,
my grandmother’s friend
who postponed going so long
we thought she’d stay.

It was like the summer years ago
when they all set out on trains
and ships, wearing hats with veils
and the proper gloves,
because everybody was going
someplace that year,
and they didn’t want
to be left behind.

Mr. Toad

This week's challenge at the Three Muses is to incorporate an animal into our artwork.  The only restriction is that it mustn't include cats or dogs.  Fun!

17 Cherry Tree Lane

This piece is for the Three Muses "floral" challenge. 

I wanted to create an English garden from this photo I took in Central Park.  Before long, it struck me that this could be the view, as darkness falls, from the window of Jane and Michael Banks' drawing room.  You know ... the two moppets under the care of nanny Mary Poppins.  So I'm using their address.

First Avenue Grunge

"Grunge" is the theme over at the Three Muses - one of my favorite styles.   Thanks for the challenge, ladies!

The storefront is a photo I took of my favorite grocery in New York City.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
