When I Turned Seveny-five

Photo on 2-26-16 at 1.38 PM

When I turned seventy-five,
I bought central air-conditioning
a garage
red hair
bird feeders
a thule
a silver Rogue
a red lynx scooter
20 long cotton dresses
a purple hurricane
30 scarves
50 red geraniums
Christmas cactus
fresh fruits, bread and fish
Tempurpedic mattresses
and a real John Deer Tractor for my grandchildren.

When I turned seventy-five,
I inherited
my Grandma’s body type
my 60 year old mid-western mate
my industriousness
my old lady sense of humor
all my purple possessions
red hats
daughter, son and in-laws
who show middle-age wisdom
and a promise of years to come
as grandparents of

Where is Picasso


mime, puppet, red hair,

stars, patterns,rosy cheeks, pol-

ka dots and blue stripes!


Jeanne's Red Hair

Jeanne’s Red Hair

on top:
glittering shades
of red, garnet, flame and
fire-engine screams, follicles reaching out;
a crown of royal antiquity, knowing youth, middle and old age.

(Did I get the FIB right this time?)

Red Hair Red Hair!

Rally Call From the Three Year Old

“Red Hair Red Hair
Please come here!”
I’m waiting on the toilet.

“Red hair Red Hair
Wipe my butt!”
I’m waiting on the toilet.

“Red Hair Red Hair”
See me proud!
I’ve learned to use the toilet!
