Last Hug

Last Hug.
Before the sun will set.
Before the stars do cease.
Before you go to endless sleep.
A moment of perfect peace.

[Our dear friend Viv was experiencing great pain, nausea and sickness from cancer. But when her grandson hugged her a smile spread across her face, and it all disappeared for one moment of true happiness. Larry captured the photo, and I painted it.
She passed the following week].

Cape Cod blues,
Vineyard greens.
Vacation houses
Closeup for the summer.
Sand, sea and quiet.
