A Rose in Blossom

by Richard L. Provencher  
1/24/2014 / Christian Living

A whisper above her wheel chair
creates its own world.
Later on, she'll remember
He was here, an hour, perhaps
a week ago, Alzheimer's
digging roots.

She'll be gone soon
from the nursing home, eyes
fixated on the overhead lighting
her green dress an impact
in the room, wheel
chair at attention, scratching
her leg, routine.

Tummy seems full, dinner
was---peas, no
chicken, potatoes cut
into little hunks, good too
she thinks, and
bread with dessert, ice cream
a cherry on top,
red like the setting sun.

Tilts her head, attentive
to One voice calling, knowing
she'll be going home soon.
