Lucilla Smiled

Although her smile I could not see, Lucilla smiled through poetry. This lovely lady I met here who graced us with her sunny ways until her very final days became for me somebody dear. Although her smile I could not see, Lucilla smiled through poetry. Her words of wisdom now can flow in heaven, where all angels go. This lovely lady I met here became for me somebody dear. Although her smile I could not see, Lucilla smiled through poetry! RIP Lucilla Carrillo - Written in her memory Oct 2014 For the Sonnetina Rispetto Contest of Dr. Ram Mehta

    Hi, Andrea. I'm published now in Haiku Journal #31and in reading the other submissions, all American haiku, I'm not sure what true haiku is. No matter. I've read the publications and most are not too clear on form. Face it, dear, my poetry is out in left field anyway. Love, daver

    You have captured her essence with this piece. She continues to be a gift to us. I too felt her smile. She continued to touch us right to the end of her life.

    She smiled through her poetry all right. Lucilla will be missed... but she is most definitely in a better place. It's plain to see how many lives she has touched - even people who never knew her in person, but in mind. Beautifully crafted, Andrea.

    Andrea, this is beautiful! What a wonderful tribute - I can't imagine anything more touching to a poet than having someone write a poem in their memory. Those first two/last two lines are perfect.
