Brookline Reflections

I visited my son

and daughter-in-law

in Brookline.

October was a fine time

to visit them

in their new home,

a 1940's building

across from a rose garden.

The visit made me realize that 

I need to see my son as the adult 

man that he is,

And to detach myself from his idyllic

childhood in Alaska.

This realization alone 

was worth the visit...

So I accept...

my age, his age, his wife, their life,

and celebrate changes.
