I remember …

October 2, 2014

Life Lines poetry pamphlet For National Poetry Day’s theme of ‘Remember,’ I would like to share a tribute poem with you from my Life Lines pamphlet (Mudfog:2013)

How you shone
whirling with Granda
on the village dance floor!
You baked chocolate cake
that lingered in my mouth,
made wedding gowns with trains
as long as the winding sheet
which enfolds your shrivelled form
in a cotton chrysalis.

How you longed
to return to the Cretan hills
where lemon butterflies skitter
across the rooftops in pairs.

The first draft of this poem was composed of several short stanzas, each beginning:’I remember …’ Perhaps you might like to try using ‘I remember … as a starting point for a new piece of writing today.
