It’s a good day
End of February, almost winter end
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
