“Lacy Moments Bring Darkness” dVerse Poets Pub: OpenLinkNight – Opening Celebration

Celebrations betray timeless droplets
of dance at weddings awaiting
laughter’s chance to take a twirl at funerals

Flowers feather harmony,
neatly arranged on a whimsical tray

Captured in moments of lace-covered
gloves, mother serves mints in the garden

Father throws waving kisses, as
grandma sits in shadows …
reciting nursery rhymes

  1. dang – this is tight…Flowers feather harmony,
    neatly arranged on a whimsical tray….all this idyll which isn’t really real…excellent

  2. haha…you cover quite the breadth of memorials in the opening…and the last couple gave a chuckle at familiarity…

  3. I like your attitude here, pamela, as well as the language, which is as always a smooth cool treat going down in this tale of the life cycle and its odd moments of serendipity and disquiet. Great to see you at dVerse tonight.

  4. signed .............bkm

    Oh that first line is the kicker Pam – it says is all – the rest is like the lace gloves you speak of ….bkm

  5. I really liked it. It managed to be clever, whimsical and sad all at once.

  6. I’m so glad to see you on dVerse. I kind of lost track of you when Big Tent folded and I love your work. Keep coming back!

  7. You poem bridges the divide between life and death in a most interesting way.

  8. “at weddings awaiting laughter’s chance to take a twirl at funerals”….wow, that is a zinger. And that is about how fast life goes, too……
