    on the road to the resurrection

    I will pass a marker tomorrow
    eight months since dad died

    they’ve planted grass now
    my mother goes to water it

    not so long after easter
    even with an empty tomb

    nine months will come and go
    soon we’ll be talking years

    for now I will find solace
    in the sadness of this first

    bluebonnet spring without
    a chance to talk baseball

    or to send him a snickers
    egg to say Christ is risen

    Peace,
    Milton

      Thinking of you along this journey. I love that you used to send Snickers eggs for Easter.
