Stately Passing

This morning the clouds are stately passing between the town’s houses and Little Mountain to the south, moving evenly in their uneven way, leaving no wake behind them, up from behind the neighbor’s roof, off to the east where they drift from view.

On Wednesday, my mother-in-law drifted from view.  She had stately passed through life, between Africa and the U.S., Kansas and Missouri and Indiana, between early illness and late health, between two husbands, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, always poised, moving evenly in her own uneven way, leaving much more of a wake than the clouds.

May she rest in peace and rise in glory.
