Trumpet_Vine

The Daily Post prompt today is Dear Mom.  My mother’s passing was many years ago, and that is hard to comprehend.  We had many wonderful conversations over the years.

I would like to know more about the history my parents lived through, when I was too young to ask those questions.

The prompts inspire new posts, and I also am grateful to share some of my best poems again.

how the
trumpet vines
grew on the wall
of my mother’s home
glorious
like her faith
her unconditional love
when God said
“It’s time . . . ”

Ellen Grace Olinger

The second poem was published in Bell’s Letters Poet (2011).
