Donna by Hanoch Guy

It’s  a  good  day
End of February, almost  winter end
sixty degrees.
My ashes in a green box.
The pastor’s Isaac sermon
is not wooden.
Almond blossom  woke him up

through the open window.

My daughters and  granddaughter  in white,
their friends in jeans.
Success with the caterer.
The  catered food is much better the

when my husband Peter  died.
I did order cheap.

My family strolls
Along my boulevard ‘s awakening trees.
They sold my scooter
And the climbing gear
But I’m already peak’s air
