Sometimes our memories are brought forth by the most everyday occurences..and we wonder if it will always be so.
This piece is written in those tumbling tercets I love so much but this time with an afterthought.. at least, that's what I'm calling it..)

Leftover Secrets

sunset lies before me in painted
blues and gold and crimson,
leftover secrets of sky

and sun, of a day now done,
slipping away with barely
a whisper to mark its

passing... and once more I am
reminded of you and your
quiet brilliance, your vibrancy

softly hidden within timid smiles
and shy whispers, how you
tiptoed out of my life and how

I wish you could have stayed
longer... and I silently wonder
as the sun descends below

golden horizons if there will ever
come a time when your memory
does not drift upon

each sunset, when I do not feel
you beside me in the hush
of twilight... or when

your whisper is no longer
heard in these leftover
secrets of sky and sun

somehow I do not think so

I do agree with Butch below...that this form seems to have been created for you. I have always loved your work...especially your sonnets but these tumbling tercets of yours I believe are your medium.
This piece is incredibly powerful...poignant but with a strength of purpose to it. It is without doubt one of your exceptional pieces.

This touches my heart as I can relate to that feeling of longing that never seems to go away, Myrna; such truth and beauty in your words make me tend to agree with your afterthought. You are the master of this form; it's as if it were created just for you.

Be safe,

Heart warming though also blue write about the losses that accompany what love often offers for just a fleeting moment in our lifes. Very nice capture for sure...

Another wonderful poem from your basket of left over dreams.
Your words tumble from the heart... and we don't go wrong there.
Also, such lovely phrases bring back memories to your reader.
I especially like, "... how you tiptoed out of my life..."
