a promise



she always wanted this pinkie ring
a promise made a long time ago

given to me when i was her age
loved and worn for many years

the gold came from her grandfather's
masonic ring
melted down
producing identical three

gifted to me by my darling
mother-in-law
lived in daily

now it's her turn
a promise kept
happy birthday dear laurel
happy birthday to you

You have so many traditions and intentional moments.
It inspires .
And that photo is divine.
