Where Lilacs Find Me


I alone dance in shadows

Of myself

Certain no one sees

'Til comes the breeze

Carrying your voice

Back to the barren fields

Of my broken heart

Eyes closed with only

Sandman' s sequins to study

Then illuminated images

Of your grace

And goodness

Vivid and voluminous

Straightens my bundled up burdens

Strengthens my slippery slope

Lends me the love

Lost on an April day

A mother's face reflected

In dreams

And around every corner

Where lilacs find me

(04/02/14) In the promise of lilacs soon to fill the air, your breath still fills my heart. Every day without you, reminds me of every day
with you. Mom....no other word more, I miss speaking.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
