searching
the entire cupboard
for that shawl …
feels like I’ve lost my mother
even before her death

    Yes, this is a fine one (I’d thought I’d left a comment earlier, but I think a lot of things). Anyway, this is a pleasure to read and re-read.

    Oh thank you for this lovely poem. I “find” my mom in an afghan she made 40 years ago, now tattered but so precious. Thank you again
