Of Endings — Poetry — Headless Now — Moca McCarty Photo

About endings:

the recent theme here has been about endings, death in slow approach — it’s not an easy thing to write about and even less so to be reminded of in frequent circumstance. Yet that’s my reality as a caregiver right now, and yes, it brings an often heavy sadness, but it also serves as mindful notice, a call for tenderness in place of sharpness, to give attention to every detail of a conversation.
