Monday WRites 306

SONGS OF A JUKEBOX
Do they have this unique song in the jukebox
Once for the anointing twice for the fox  

Who's wiser than a legacy 
Who can outrun his destiny 

There comes a time then 
At goodbye o'clock when 

All we desire is that rest of peace
SONGS OF A JUKEBOX © gillena cox 2021

Paying tribute today to my mother who died last Wednesday and was cremated yesterday. Here are some poems, shared here in the past, written with her in mind.

Spicy Sorts
St Georges to Port of Spain
Coconut Fudge
There beside The Sea
First Woman Blood

You've heard about the Monday Blues well this is Monday WRites (musing on the definition here of rite, as any customary observance for eg the rite of afternoon tea).
Welcome to Monday WRites #306: A Happy Monday to all. Be Safe.

  20. At funerals only 10 persons. We are still under State of Emergency with curfew hours and partial lockdown. I did not attend my mother's funeral in person. I attended via a live stream at youtube
