For Margaret

               Four months later

Unexpected visitors:
Margaret's daughter and grand-daughter.
Her benign presence hovered in the room;
I kept listening out for her throaty chuckle.
Her mind was elastic and stretched
other minds to find new possibilities
of life and living. 

When the family left Marg's essence 
remained as if she was reaching out
to encourage me to explore and dig deeper.

That was always her gift.
