Memorial Day in my backyard

Mother, I am sad.
Tell me.
Memorial Day reminds me of death.
Yes.
Both my parents have passed.
So it is.
I’m an adult orphan.
It happens to all.
Last year, I lost both my dogs.
I had to say when;
I hated that power.
Correct.
Even I must leave.
Impermanence,
one of the teachings.
You see it in the seasons,
changing,
yet new life arises.
I know.
It’s nice out here in the backyard,
the breeze brings me ease.
Find it within, dear,
visit as much as you need.
