Where A Magnolia Blooms

Coffee bean scent still fills the air with each new sunrise in our log cabin. My arms around me embrace the winds of winters gone On every sky-night glass-panes glow in silent mist Lunar limbs stream through bedroom blinds reflecting shadows on empty sheets. Star clusters shine 'bove velvet shores Sand-wish away from my bare toes. Another day,another month,another year and other thoughts. I can't freeze time or make a clone. First magnolia blooms on a bare branch Buzzing bees extract nectar from a moist corolla Pastel wings flutter on melting icicles Sunbirds return in a sweet song But what is a song without the symphony What is music with no slow dance? His Hand-pressed petal still marks the chapter between stained pages. The dusty shelves recall my mind recall my heart,recall my soul. For the last time of many a time these eyes would linger Before leaves curl,before buds wither Before moon moves on and I let go.

Such a beautiful and mesmerizing poem my sweet friend. I can feel the longing in this and the desire. It expresses a sadness to me that touches my heart but it is a beautiful sadness that flows so smoothly before my eyes. You are an amazing talent.
