HAPPY BIRTHDAY…

FOR JEAN
…remembering my Mother tomorrow

Today, she walks with the sun
while in her footsteps
the rain still falls

Today, she walks with the sun
and holds it inside her eyes
rising across the dark hills
where only the eagle flies

the sun moves on
leaving darkness where it has passed
but light will come again
in the morning
