Sweet William

Image
A spray of dainty blue,
A wafting scent
Control the strings of time
And draw me back
To longer, slower days
And I recall
The teapot overflowing
With these flowers.
You picked them and exclaimed
About the scent
Your comments
(And your pot)
Always the same.




 But now I know
 That all routines must change,
 The flowers grow
 More scarce from year to next.
 I haven't seen the teapot in...
 How long?







And all our ties of love have
Changed as well,
Becoming deeper, stronger through the years
Revived each day
In all the little things;
A look, a smell, a sound,                                                                                                    
And wildflowers.

Spring Rains

Thunder chuckles
Deeply
Lightning sprightly
Dances
Kindly rain looks
Down,
Wakening the grasses.

Dancers

Image
On sunny days:
We dance
On stormy nights:
We dance.
Hand-in-hand
With whirling time,
Linked in sorrow,
Song and rhyme,
All of us who do not walk
But dance.
