Leaves me wiht questions, of course, but a lovely poem. They would have felt quite sacred.
Thank you, Rita. :)
I can certainly understand the impetus there, and the necessity.
A powerful memory for me. Thanks for reading and commenting, Terry.
Dear Teresa, somehow, when I read your poem and the sacredness of all that is part of a loved one--socks included--the words "Holy the Firm" came to me. If I'm remembering correctly, that is the name of a book by Annie Dilliard. I on't know if you've read it--it must be 20 or more years since it's publication--but I think it would speak to you. Peace.
Hi Dee, I think I've read the Dillard book, but it's been some time. Perhaps I will revisit it. Thank you for the suggestion.
