tanka for mom

as you grow old

limbs fail, thoughts ramble

never lose

the caress of love

the child in your eye  

grim reaper reaps

 memories vanish

photographs fade

"who is that woman?"

footprints in the sand 

rocks, desert plants 

a magic sculpture

sun enfolds

luminescent visions

mom's last work of art
