    Evenings there upon the cliffs,
    just at sunset, the pelicans play,
    the ocean stirs the flow of waves
    in darkness, running over wet soft earth

    The soul can be heard,
    sounds of sea swelling,
    falling, breathing

    Rising up on it's haunt against
    the mouth of the caves,
    splitting the flowers against
    the sea colliding with the mountain

    Gently arousing the flow for the
    mountain, for the sea to chant your
    name to the night sky,

    Your aroma still lingers
    when I stand there,
    still on soft ground,
    still lingers as the ocean mist
    spreads you over the earth

    Spreads you over me,
    I find peace again

    In memory

once again...in your words ... I read me...
this is so beautiful and serene ...
written like a whispered secret...
so nice to see you back and posting again
take care

There are places inside our souls -
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts -
that need to be loved this much.

This is beautiful, love the theme and the way it flowed.

You know I think you have grown so much in your writing, but this particular one I love, as it feels written for me, Jan, Karen, or anyone that suffered a loss, and yet...I know it was yours.  Digging around, and dusting shelves, don't mind me.
