Michelle sleeps
her features cloudy
and just the slightest trace
of light where
the fine hairs curled.

Michelle sleeps
receding into air
that blows fragrance
from the grass
to recall
how specks of sun
colored her eyes.

Michelle sleeps
I see her smile only
when the peach tree blooms
in February.

Martie, I think this is a beautiful poem. But I feel a sense of sorrow.

Thankyou all for your comments. Ohme, it is sad because it is about the death of a very special little girl who I was lucky enough to be the mother of for 8 years. Today is her birthday. She would be 34 now.

I just want to hug you, Martie.  I hope the peach blossoms still carry her smile this February.
