i see you | a tribute to mom

In brilliant red hydrangea blooms
In big yellow tulip bulbs
In budding dogwood trees and hosta leaves
.
In August sun and as bright a smile
In strikingly saturated fall foliage hues
In flawless and elaborate Christmas decorations
.
In impeccably tailored, high waisted skirts
In Pinot Noir and crimson colored toes
In everything polished and perfect
.
In unusual landscape art and traditional antiques
In Sinatra’s Fly Me to the Moon and Buffet’s Volcano
In hot fudge and chocolate chip cookies
.
In inspiring self-confidence and strong opinions
In unfailing drive and acknowledged pride
In the vocal, ardent appreciation of all things beautiful
.
In an open heart and a warm embrace
In extraordinary strength that overcomes despair
In the deepest depths of love and care
.
I see you there and everywhere
I see you in me
I see you always
.
.
For Mom, who went to a better place on August 29th, 2013.
I love you and miss you terribly. But most of all, I’m thankful you’re whole again.
