michele kostelnik Poems


How best should I remember you?
I think of how fast lives pass...
No choice but to weep, soon
or last, be lost or caught-


It is sad to see a child's eyes in a morning light
crying out but no bread in sight
Possessions are few and time is brief
The parents-beyond reason wait with grief


All pits of life have gone by.
Your soul is the only thing that
will not die.
Beneath ground are these black caves

There's a child I can see in back of your eyes.

Souls Of Old

The burial ground came out of the past.
A spinster a blacksmith and courtesan
all seemed downcast.
Time had stood still with their names
