Caregiver

Unhurried, without shaming. Care so gentle that she forgot her place in time.

Through clouded eyes and deafened ears, she recognized her mother, long deceased.

With cool fingertips, her only unwrinkled skin, reached out to touch.

The resemblance uncanny.

        Yay! Isn’t it fun how this works? I’d discovered most of the prompts/challenges through other people’s posts! It’s the better kind of ‘stalking’ … πŸ˜‰
