The Wind


A Very Mary Variation

First line borrowed from Mary Olivers’s poem “I Don’t Want to Lose”

The Wind

Just now, a moment from years ago: 

a snapshot from Timehop- proudly smiling you in a too-big necktie 

a blanket that tucked you night-tight and kept the hug warm 

a can of monster and robber spray – for peaceful sleep

a picture you painted – “the wind” 

memories,  fleeting just like that wind 

and a Bible verse-

God doesn’t want us to worry

Matthew 6:25-33
