What if a second could capture
the last heart beat
her baby kiss
4am grace
scent of ridge top

Or fresh ground black coffee bedevil
now to inverse
crystal ball risk
Bell jar moonlight
Move on with grace

Cosmos pregnant, stretch marks shameless
In Virginia
Yellow headed
Blackbirds look like
Bees on lilac

  1. Lovely poem. You did the same as me – you’ve written 5 lines per stanza but it should be 4 lines per stanza so that each one counts 20, rather than 24. But still, the poem is excellent.
