Missing Mum today

The hay bales are in the fields again,
Some wrapped in black, some are bare,
I remember your fascination
When the doughnut machine held your stare.
Like a young child, with hands behind
Your back you stood at the window,
Watching the harvesting that sunny day
Your pleasure grew and grew.
Never having seen it before,
This memory lingers still,
You and the wonderful doughnut machine
Reminds me, and always will.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. When I feed the garden birds it always reminds me of my mum. She had the best fed birds in the area. If she left the back door open some would come in and find her.

  2. Di, this piece is so tenderly written. I loved it! 🥰
