Treasure Island

Darwin Henry Beuning

(29 July 1947 / Melrose, Minnesota)

Melrose - Morning Check


Hallways darkened!
Walking quickly
Toward the room
Pen light in hand

Slowly entering
Mother's room
Not too far
'Motion Alarm'

Shining a light
On mom from afar,
Gentle breathing
I observe

Backing out slowly
Not to disturb
Another dawn
She will observe
