A wish— quadrille

mists swirling over a fen,

sips of wine, river wind, and spray

peace with no regret,

the touch of lost ones she dreams,

may gentle cheer come here

where she dwells trapped by disease

in this shrinking unkind world

soon to let her go.

For dVerse Monday our quadrille must include some version of the word ‘cheer’.

    1. Thank you Rob. Thankfully I am well…it’s a grandmother in my extended family and it’s heartbreaking to see her and others in her nursing home suffer (to degrees no one would want to face).
