The window shrinks smaller and smaller,
My aging mother tells me.
More and more interior,
Memories bumping into furnishings
Outside diminished to distant.

It is to protect you, I say.
Ja ja, she shrugs,
But one needs to get out
Feel the sun,
Smell the rain
If only on a balcony.

Protection makes you afraid,
she tells me.
Keeps you apart.
Great grand babies loom large,
Family too boisterous.
I become a fragile bonsai
Immobile in my sculpted pot
Invisible until you seek me.
