Yartzeit *anniversary of a loved one’s death*

*for my mother, Marlene Katherine Gokenbach (August 28, 1931-April 4, 2019*

Yartzeit

my glass of wine sanctifies time

but can’t bring you back

again I open the window

as a sign for both of us

across the yard a dog barks

and from the pine tree a crow answers

evening becomes morning

and my sense of you deepens
