After You’d Gone

After you’d gone
some days … a week …
a month … a blur

and then
a yellow tulip
sprouted and bloomed
in the yard.

I had never planted tulips.

A gift from the squirrels,
friends said

and then
clearing out your things
last of a lifetime of belongings
I found a notebook.

I opened it
to a random page and read

Did you find the yellow flowers?


and then
I knew no damn squirrel
would bring me a gift!

Thanks mom!
