A Moment in the Garden

Two faces. Shining in the sunlight. So similar. So lovely. Achingly sweet. Both.

Chasing through the pumpkins.


Eyes dancing.

Hearts racing.

Squeals of delight.

Mother. Baby girl. The eyes. The curve of the face. So similar. So lovely. So full of life and light and joy…in this moment…together.

This gift.

She reaches for me…and calls, “Mama.”

And I rejoice.

And I mourn.

These two girls. So similar. So lovely. Laughing together.

A moment in the garden.
