DORIS #poetry by jay

A poem to honor my best friend’s mother who left us last month-

A legend has left us today-

she, they, came when we didn’t exist

birthed us into this

and now they left, 

took leave, deceased,

a mother of the world,

in grace she leaves

plenty of her, many of her, 

never will be

again, as they take leave.

A mother where none can be found

she shrouds blankets on shoulders 

without doubts 

or second thoughts,

in their home from their streets

they legend a story without

a plot, it takes shape without a thought,

an era to a door – to–  an era to a door.

A legend takes leave

from a close-knit core, from a Main Street

corridor, in a town still small, sprawl at bay

still. 

A legend takes leave today-

as heaven opens its door,

for one more.
