Still Life

Someone is washing my feet

Clipping my nails

Head down, steady in her work

 

Outside, a couple sit together as one

Backs to the sun

Remembering the life they left behind

 

Shoulder to shoulder

In sari and ski hat

Carrying their culture together

 

Sunday, still life

From here to there

From there to here

All of us held

For one silent moment in time

(inspired by a story told by Cathy G.)
