Never Forgotten


Memories blur together
Some fade away

Like the changing weather
None are here to stay...



That's the way memories go for me,
until I see Forget-Me-Nots.



How appropriate that each time I see these flowers
I think of my Mother.


They were one of her favourites.



I love their delicate, simple petals,
painted in an ever-changing
array of soft pastels.




They wander through my garden,
appearing not where I planted them
but where I most need them.



Beautiful, dependable, strong,
each center adorned with
a heart of gold;

They always put a smile on my face.

The same way my mother did.

  23. Beautiful prose and photography! I scattered several seeds packets but only got a few small plants and none bloomed. I think I'll scatter them in the fall this year. I think they need a cold freeze/thaw cycle to grow. :o)
