Memory of a Girl by Timothy Resau

She stood where the soil was tender.

She saw the wind ripple and wave.

Her pond and lake were dry,

her hair smelled of salt and sea.


She was here for love.


Still, even now, she returns,

watching and waiting.

The earth is damp, though, smells of clay …

she will not leave.

  1. Reminiscent of the dreamy and romantic; vivid, and just enough detail to make me wonder at its deeper meaning not readily there on the surface. Thanks for sharing.
