An echo
Mist-filled memories of sun-dripped mornings
Summer breezes before the day
Dreams of love, enchantment, chivalry…

A ruckus
Stampede evenings, trampled ideals
Bitter winds close out the night
Tattered hopes breathe only as tepid embers

A shuffle
Years of pain and suffering advent to recovery
Warmth, foreign but welcome, lends light
Discovery of the best you once were..

A triumph
Smiles tickle the soul in need of love and laughter
Footsteps, faint yet sonorous, while standing quite still
Comfort and joy in the touch on my face,
Lingering kiss on my lips
Her barefoot whisper in the halls of my heart…
