I remember you!
As peeked out
White within the green
harbinger of spring
your scent
fresh after winter’s smoke

But that was in my youth
A long time since I saw
The buds of you
And held you to
My face in renewal

Lily of the Valley
The book says the flower
Represents new life
And renewed happiness

Perhaps that’s why
I’m so sad

I can understand this ... beheld beauty in memory and distance. Much love to you.

She said burn ... together.

I like this!  Free verse and touching to boot!  Plus I love lillies...  It's the flower of May babies you know.

Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn.

The flower is very sought after, for brides..small and delicate with a lovely fregrance.  They are hard to find here in California, and come at a high price if you buy at the flower market.  

Enjoyed your poem, Sharon...brought another meaning to such a pretty flower.

(big hugggsssssss) Oh Sharon, this is so very sad, sweet friend, my heart goes out to you for I know how you feel, change is constant and I only wish we could preserve some things rather than have them all go on! (sigh) This is excellent, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Sharon, thank you for sharing!

May love and light always shine upon you!
