Behind Me

Had another pleasant surprise in my inbox today—Renovation is on Poetree Creations. Thank you.  And thanks to everyone who hit the like button on this site.

My aunt inspired this poem. She’s in the nursing home with Alzheimer’s.

I can still see her finger motioning me closer to her wheelchair. Asked a question, “just between you and me.”

“Why do people hate?” 

I wasn’t sure what to say. Renovation is my attempt at an answer.

Thank you, Aunt Jane. Sorry I didn’t keep our secret. But, maybe, if everybody pondered why people hate we would quit.
