Hankies In Her Pocket

Hankies in Her Pocket
Lisa A.Williams

She held them tightly,
 in her apron pocket,
feeling the soft cotton,

delicate embroidery
of dainty butterflies in pink and blue,
faded from all the sadness
their wings embraced.

with no beginning,
no end,
just an endless stream,
searching for a soft familiar place
where like treasure
my mother’s tears
were saved.
