Turn and Look

IMG_0636

middle age has a tough time turning to look

 

grands have no trouble

turning to grin at Nana-

but my son

has to follow my weird directions

and wonders ’bout my sanity

“face away”, he wonders

“from my mother on Mother’s Day”

with my biking shoes

and their LLBean boots

purchased for them by Nana- obliging,

diligently winking with side looks

back to the village that raises them.
