*The First Day of Spring*

There are times
I wish
to be there again
Under the oak trees
With my eyes closed
the moss smells
irresistibly delightful
and the song of owls
comes from afar

And never mind
my childish fears
I would know
how to listen to the darkness
sounds of the forest

Oh I’ve never thought
how painful
it will be
To embrace the spring
on its very first day

I’ve never thought

The day
which once was joy
The rebirth of nature
merely grief

I’ve never thought
that the birdsong
would veil me
with the black lace
of longing
Remind me forever
of a heart
that stopped beating
when spring
just opened its eyes

The end is better than beginning
said an ancient book
I won’t lose hope
You may be
at another place
Where time has no meaning
where mirrors show no breath
and life is not even a memory
A dawn of one new spring
has to bring you back


This one
is for you dad

  1. A wonderful tribute to your Dad Eclipse, memories often hold us in their own emotion as certain things trigger a memory of our loved ones.. Today happens to be my Mothers Anniversary of her passing.. This holds sadness not only on her passing, but of the wasted years in the silent 10 yrs we shared prior to her passing.. Despite my attempts to bridge her stubbornness .. I hope now she can view life with less bitterness, as I sent her a loving wish today that she is at Peace with herself at last.. ~Beautiful Words here Eclipse speaks volumes of your love and grief.. ~Sue
