winter (do not forget among the loss of flowers) me

winter
do not forget among the loss of flowers
me
beneath your death of snow

do not forget that bird of sun
the trees gave down there bending branches
to light the grass where love made little flowers

do not forget my love
the lights most fragile gift the sky
bowed low to give a blushing praise
to the joyful dance of star and moon

do not forget the nesting hope of spring
the freed sparrow of your fingers
the silence more deep then words

remember me in the summerless field
the slender moment bereft of rain
before life and you became

I think you're talking about Mother Nature. Your lines are strong. I'm digging your line breaks. Congrats on the feature. Line 9, "lights" or "light's"?

I thought this should been much higher in the judging...top 3...this is wonderfully penned and completely relocates the reader to another place...another spirit. Excellent...almost plain in its clearness of beauty... by "plain" I mean a compliment in its unclutteredness, yet detailed in expression.
