>"Sylvia Frances" one stop wednesday #31


(a dedication to my mom)
I stood in front of you looking into your eyes,
examining every breath that settled on me,
soft, like a floating leaf. 

Watching your body’s movements
like a butterfly released from a cocoon.
Your blood that flowed in a circulating current
like a river inside of a sea.

As I laid down next to you to watch you sleep,
golden hair with soft curls, like circles of silk
with no beginning or end. 

Your eyes forever with me,
never completely shut as you slept,
rapid flickers moving about
like blue lights illuminating darkness.

Being with you was a docile
flight … carrying me to the green
countryside of your homeland.
Folklore and songs from a childhood
of happiness that existed inside you,
shared without hesitation …

Sometimes, I sit alone at nights
wishing I could kiss your cheek
or touch your hand once more …
