on October sixth
to resemble a patch work quilt
Orange, red, yellow, brown, tan
all mixed with evergreen
olive green, forest green
Butterflies hovering over
Purple flowers scattered
like weeds all over the yard
Maggie and I rocked
on the front porch swing
Her eyes closing from the heat
and playing with her friend Millie
The sounds of the birds in
the holly tree sang her to sleep
Quiet, mountain moments
holding close the ones you love.
