A journey in time with Alzheimer's

No harm provoked the yell
Just wanting … to be heard
Rushing feet …hurry
To save ..what? …no wrong
Why yell …no harm befalls
To scurry feet …along
All because …just all
Because …it’s quiet
Too …calm.

I’ll be chatting/listening to Mother and the above occurs. Tickles me a bit, so typical of kids!


Bury my head in a pillow?
No way!
Eyes wide open

Behind a tree?
If lady blue
Looks for me!

Think it’s funny?
yeah …so!
You’d run too
From Lady Blue!

Exploding Gloves

So funny…gloves on backwards
You’re struggling…a fact
Pulled and tugged and… on!
How did you do that?

You have the fingers doubled
You twisted the thumb
I’s amazing, but then your
Fingers ARE NUMB!

So…I pull the car over
To the side of the road
The way you’re stuffing
Those gloves… might explode!

As I fix them…you’re laughing
Seems it’s funny to you
I watch…I smile
Yeah…me too!

The tips of mom’s fingers have been numb for many years…add the arthritis  and she does have a time!
