Lily Strikes the Hours

i remember the back of you 
	as a lily strikes the hours 
every stone walks off 
and the morning sinks 
in an avalanche of footprints,
	petals and parables
the sudden whitewashed 
	limbs of you

As I don’t anticipate posting again this week, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

    • Thank you very much. I have to say I’m surprised this showed up in your Google newsfeed, but, of course, I am delighted you found my site. And I’m glad the poem resonated with you. Happy holidays!
