Sunday Muse #138, and our photo of inspiration somehow reminded me of my mother’s battle with Alzheimer’s, as it seemed fog enshrouded her and she struggled to keep track of her days that seemed to pass anonymously in their sameness.

THIS IS TODAY
Once she was a multi-tasker
If you wanted something just ask her
But time had taken its toll
It seemed a fog confused her
Everyday things bemused her
Remembering was her goal
She hung a calendar on her wall
To try to keep some sense of it all
Names and faces faded away
Determined to keep it all in line
She wrote on a day with pencil fine
“This”, she wrote carefully “is today”.
