The Satin Dress
Gripping Dad’s arm, my throat tight; breathe, smile, go. At the end of the aisle he waits. Mom stands, our eyes meet. Memories glisten in hers. I touch the satin of my dress, her dress 24 years ago. A new life begins. The old one remains. A circle ever growing.(50)

I look at my daughter cradling her daughter. A grandmother! How did that happen so fast? Such a strange thing time is; passing by almost unnoticed until it stops for a moment, forcing recognition. A new generation born: time pushing me ahead in such a lovely way. (47)
