sitting in the sun

sitting in the sun
with a cup of decaff
wearing 3 layers for warmth
Aunt Merc’s daffodils
warm as the sun

My great-aunt, Mercedes Schwanke, lived to be almost 100.  She lived on the East Side of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I planted daffodils after her funeral, years ago, as a symbol of the Resurrection.
