Memory Idyll [repost]

Rainbow umbrella crashing waves

The gray days of winter crash and foam, one much like another. Memories sprout like tender green buds under a warm yellow sun. You thrived in spring, with your hands in the dirt, coaxing forth a rainbow of blossoms.

These empty blue rooms
Echo my silent crying:
I miss you, Mommy…

Happy birthday, Mommy. Love you always.

    All the rules for the type of poem, then all the prompt rules… that’s a lot of work.

    This is a beautiful piece that gave me sad feels☹💙🌈
