dVerse — Quadrille Monday 2nd entry — Mother’s Gift

Gardening 101: White Ash Tree - Gardenista

Mother’s birthday gift,
a planted sapling you,
the front yard ash, grew
old with me. A weathered,
tuckered man, limbs drooping,
I was laid to rest
beside you under
your open arms.
Now we share rolling
seasons in silent comfort,
as fond companions do.

Sarah is today’s host for dVerse’ Quadrille Monday.  Today’s word is “ash” and I like the word so much I wrote two poems.  This is the 2nd poem.
