Poem Of The Week

Author’s Note: Memorial Day is upon us, which brings this poem to mind, since the wind has been keeping all the flags dancing. I post it in memory of my friend Dorothy, who loved it best of all my poems. Grass widows are wildflowers with purple bells and grass-like leaves, and come out early in spring.

Grass Widows

Some people say heaven’s up there
But I say earth’s the miracle place
I say this dark rocky swell of dirt
Is where spirits dwell
This flowing turf is clouds of glory
These slender leaves are anchored angels
These blowing purple bells are unfurled wings
And I say, I believe, I believe.
