The Flower of Memory
    by Michael Haynes

The Flower of Memory
Artwork by Liz Clarke

My fourteen-year-old daughter Sophia sets the flower, one of the last from our ruined greenhouse, by the crude headstone I erected several weeks ago. The rose is a bright splash of red against the stark white of August snow.

A recollection comes to me as I look at that flower, a quotation which seems appropriate now. "There was a writer named J. M. Barrie," I say by way of introduction.

She looks up at me, pale blue eyes like her mother's. Eyes that will haunt me as long as I live, though I have good reason to believe that won't be much longer. Good reason as well to believe that it won't be much longer for any of us.
