A Whirling Wind Uplifts A Leaf

A whirling wind uplifts a leaf
Brings childish laughter midst my grief
And though my sorrow tears at me
There’s also room for Lana’s glee.

Some said, “Don’t take her to the grave”
Why force the young to be so brave
When faced with fate? She seems okay
As long as leaves and winds will play.

And then Grandmother looks our way
I see the wrinkles, grief, and gray
But see the twinkle in her eyes
As she sees Lana’s fingers rise

To catch that leaf that seems to fly
Into my daughter’s hands; I sigh
Her laughter sounds; what can I do
Then I hear...

Honey Tree Logic

If I were a bear, I would barely breathe
As the bees swarmed near—til my courage grew
When my memory of past stings grew dim
I would reach within; what could six bees do?

And I soon forgot, as my taste buds laughed,
As more bees appeared-I would just want more
My “Oh bother” says all there is to say:
Let those bees be bees, I’m what honey’s for.
