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

Poet's Notes about The Poem

(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 Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
