    The poem teases me with ambiguity. Is your mom dead or does she no longer need the meds? Are you giving her meds to others or perhaps to yourself? I love its suggestive richness.

  2. Roberta Beary Says:

    she’s dead, Gaby. giving to others…

    Very moving, Roberta — always am touched by your poems

    As someone who has written a lot about my mother in haiku, and in haibun, and never realised that I would, these poems are important. They do an awful lot of good whether someone is normally a poetry lover or not. They just connect.

    Many thanks Roberta, and to Tinywords, for publishing this one.

    warmest regards, hope to see you soon somewhere near in the South West of England! :-)
