For Nadine

Let us line our memories
side by side, build a raft
to hold her, let our tears
flow as one, form a river
to carry her, line her way
with echoes of her spirit:
her giving heart, her smile,
a vibrancy imprinted on
our hearts, forever blessed
for having been a part of her.


(Today’s prompt is to write an elegy.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
