A lifetime

In the twilight of her life,
She rocks herself, gently.
An ancient song rises
From deep within her soul.
Her worn heart is drumming.
Her memory hesitates.

She remembers.
The smell of freshly mown hay.
White clothes blowing in the wind.
Her mother’s hands.
Then nothing.

She rocks herself, gently.
