The Smell Of Lilacs Ebbs And Flows

The smell of lilacs ebbs and flows
Over my senses
Taking me back in time
When life was slow
And in pastures green
Children laughing, playing
Running past the stream.

Sweet scented lilacs are my time machine.

My Face

June 29, 2015

Mom and Twiggy ~ Photo by Patrice

Each morning now I greet a face
A stranger, I don’t remember
Back in time or space
An older woman surprises me in the mirror
Each morning, when
I wash her face.

When did she get here?
When did she arrive?
When did she replace that young girl?
Who greeted me in the mirror
As I
Washed her face.

Glad she’s here
Glad she survived and got thru
All the world put on her plate
When I think about it
I’m glad she took that young girl’s place
The one who used to
Wash my face.

The Heart Is Mended

May 2, 2014

Succulent Flower ~ Photo by Patrice

The heart is mended, the life is fine
No thought is taken
Of what happened back in time.

Moving forward, risking not
Becoming ice
In a land that’s hot.

Then in the midst of emptiness
She dares, she dreams
she dreams a lot.
