Gather the Memories…. while you may

We went today to see an old relative, and her husband.
Old friends, relatives of my husband’s, the only ones left from the previous generation.
Fancifully named Aurora, she remembers three generations dead and gone. She remembers house names, addresses, pet names and relationships.
Aurora, throwing light on the shifting patterns of darkness
Mysteries of family gone.
Remembrances of shapes and sizes,
Of where the graves are,
Of turns of phrase.
We return to the family home.
Search through musty boxes,
Hidden shelves.
We find the images that give shape to the stories
The search goes on.
We hope Aurora does too.
