Grief is both the searing fire of love and shocking chill of ice. In this episode, I explore my grief of losing my mother to Alzheimer’s through prose and poetry."
I read my poems, "Before Eden Fell", "Grief Seeks Treasures", "Erosion", Picking Blueberries with Mom", "A Fine Coat", "Grace", "Sunset", "Weeping Willow".
Enjoy words from Walter Bargen, Missouri’s first Poet Laureate, whose book of poems My Other Mother's Red Mercedes (2018, Lamar University Literary Press) explores his loss of his mother to Alzheimer's. I read, "Migration".
And Robert Frost, whose work "Nothing Gold Can Stay" can be found at https://poetryfoundation.org.
