I live where
trees lead a quiet life –
I read want ads
search for unfound keyholes
& suffer pain in public

her life in a country town
she adds fresh water
to the glass vase…
rearranges the lilacs

    forgive me, roses
I cut your life
to save mine
the garden stems
weep with the loss

space Robert Henry Poulin - USA

when you didn't return
I gave the flowers to
the woman
getting off the railway train
who looked just like you

space Johnny Baranski - USA

  that first spring he vowed
never to bring me flowers…
only a dream
of an old gypsy caravan
and a winding road
