So quick, thoughts of you became a daily thing

morning waking up with your face vividly burned

in the iris of my eyes, brighter than sunlight

filtering through the blinds in mid spring.

And I took you with me in the summer

your face riding the waves as I yearned

to taste more than the salty water.

Dreams of you became a daily sunset

your ghost shifting in winds of mid-summer

waiting for your love to bear fruit.

But autumn wishes dropped dry and brittle

carried by times helping me forget

reasons why holding on to such pursuit

when was faced with my reality.

Now winter approaches with frozen dreams

left out in the cold, wrapped in a blanket of regrets

I dwell for a love in my heart deeply whittled

during the passing seasons of my life.

    Whatt a beautiful poem Hector. Is that you speaking? How very lovely you sound hug. Is that an app you used to do the voice message?

    Well Som. It takes a special soul to raise bar with elegance. I knew right off you are just such a special soul. Big Hi-5 all around.

    P.S. Your voice is just as I thought it would be.

    Wow. Reading this piece made me think about the Summer that’s just passed as I enter Autumn, and the discoloration of the trees become evident as the seasonal shift unfolds down here in the southern hemisphere. Hope you have a lovely Spring and that you’re blessed, environmentally, with the blossoming of all things renewed.
