Falling, Falling

I catch a soft murmur, in my night hallucination; placid words and articulation of Mom, as if standing within my grasp. I want this so much, I hold no angst, no horror or panic; my mind is ajar, and wildly staring, toward a ghost, a contour- a shadow familiar; I so want my Mom. My vision murmurs, calm and still my darling, and I am falling, falling into a hush; to grasp this soft murmur, again, again and again . . . . _______________________ July 13, 2020 Poetry/Lipogram/Verse/Falling, Falling Copyright Protected,ID 20-1268-122-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for the PREMIER contest, Lipogram sponsor, Emile Pinet Second Place

Even when our mom's have left us, they never really leave us. I find myself quoting my mom all the time and dreaming about her - falling, falling falling a great visual! Congratulations on your second place, Constance! Blessings!

Congratulations Constance! Your poem earned "Second" in my contest, due to the technical demands of this form it was a very difficult contest to judge, but your emotional poem caught my eye and touched my heart. Well done my friend, Emile.
