Welcome friends and family!

within a fixed parameter,

movable blocks of shadow

and light, interchangeable

or not."

Front and Center!

These two creatures who have locked up my heart will be front and center in this little corner of blogosphere!

This is in response to my sister's wonderful post about our parents, siblings and extended family. This is the title poem of the poetry chapbook (by the same name) I had published a few years ago. As we get older, the family connections get more precious and more fragile. At some point, many of the more endearing are but tendrils of memory.

As we lose the pieces of our past,
Person by person,
As we cut the cords,
One by one,
Of our invulnerability,
We are left to wobble
In the vast realization of our own mortality.

Made me a little sad...probably because I've started to wobble.

Love, Q

This is great. I think I see some familiar faces there . . .

Kelly said...

"Passages" is still one of my all time favorite books of poetry. You're in good company on my poetry shelf right there between Linda Pastan and Marge Piercy! You'll never be old, Pammie. You're just too young at heart...
