FLIPPING MEMORIES



watching wild geese drift old lady on porch sips rose tea as late noon grows pale... thumbs browse ripped album pages flipping memories of youth

The Twilight of Memory

Since I did not glance
at the passing of my time
mirror on the wall
I witness a fading frame,
all I’ve left is this inside.

Tasting Bliss

Outside your window
I waited as in a dream.
There beneath your sill
whilst in my most int'mate thoughts...
Again we were tasting bliss.

Whisper

Stirring my coffee
Staring right in front of me
Thoughts flies like echoes
Reverberating the past
Silence whispered... I'm alive.

On the edge of a dream

Sunlight on the sea
A beautiful reflection
Here I stand alone 
Thinking about yesterday
And remembering her love

Sweet Raspberry Kisses


Baby, when you’re grown
cradling your own darling babe.
Remember your days
of sweet raspberry kisses,
rhymes and twinkling lullabies.

I will remember
the sweet sound of your babble
through bubbling laughter, 
your pudgy, little fingers  
and wide-eyed wonder, always.


for Andrea Dietrich's SWEET or SALTY? Contest,

Tainted memory Tanka

Sound of broken twigs
turned the ears of a lone wolf
Memoir of his ex
tainted his way to true love
sound of broken twigs -- She left

Abandoned


Rusting old screen door Gateway to a once loved home Banging in the wind Echoing children's voices As they came and went each day
For the Tanka contest....

Sansai

hidden in the woods
the last of winter melting
where fiddleheads grow -
it will be lonelier here
harvesting these without Dad

Fishing in Black Sea

Fishing in Black Sea
We found the old emeralds
The tears of lovers
In hope to cover the Earth:
Adorno`s  imperative
