THE CHILDREN’S HOUR
Small and toasted:
Bounding through the diamond drops-
Spin ‘round and 'round
Again and again;
Make me feel your laughter.
Count to ten
Missing one and seven;
Hold tiny hands
Before your eyes,
“Here I come you ole wet water,”
And jump the sprinkler
High and wide.
Tell me how it’s done:
“Just Like this
Just like that
Pause in your flight
Around and around
To soak my hand
And squeeze it.
Buzz and buzz by me
Tweaking my nose,
Tipping my life
In the brush
Of your toes.
I’ll turn it off;
Let’s go in.”
I wrap the towels,
Open the door,
Watch the footprints spreading;
Then silently shadow the hose
The water’s dripping.

This poem tells of the unfortunate destruction of The Dunes of Aberdeen, part of an important dune system in the coastal wilderness of Scotland, to create Donald Trump's controversial Aberdeenshire golf course, opened in 2012, which he called "the greatest golf course in the world."
One of my best childhood memories was going with my cousis, aunts and uncles to Mills River, North Carolina, to spend the day-- eating breakfast from a mountain grill, sharing a picnic lunch, wading in the icy shallows and playing until exhausted.
The long-term care/hospice relationship between a beloved parent and an adult child has many facets, one of which is never knowing on any given visit what to expect from minute to minute. One minute may bring joy; another frustration, fear or pain.
