The Hawk Queen Bed 9:22am

I am heart-broken

I have lost

My Mother’s Amber Beads

I kept Them in My Closet

with other necklaces

but for yesterday’s Dinner

I could not find Them

when last I wore Their Rich Glassy Orange

could the string have broken

& I not have known?

February 19th, 2016 Found Them!  Found Them in My Closet after hanging up a spiral necklace I wore today to see My New Psychiatrist.  I saw My Mother’s Amber Beads dangling from an unworn fringy purse My Daughter gave Me, and called the discovery a miracle!
