For Viv

Posted on

A tear surprised my face today
as lavender and sweet bouquets
swayed gently to the clarinet

A tear surprised my face today
for all you penned upon a page
when petals drop before they fade

A tear surprised my face today
though we had never met

 

In memory of Viv Blake, a beautiful lady and talented poet who graced the dVerse community as well as others.  She will surely be missed by many who loved her and admired her.  We will continue to be blessed by her words and spirit.

Rest in peace and sunshine, Viv.

  12. I like your repeating line. It’s very affective in describing the surprise of Viv’s sudden passing. It’s going to take some time getting used to that. Lovely and heartfelt, Mish…thanks for sharing.
