#630 — Memories;

Ripples
Of your laughter,
Drift in the morning air —
Portrait on the wall, listen, you
Are here.
Chasing,
One the other,
You’re running on the floor
Portrait on the wall, listen, you
Are here.
Giggles,
Silent whispers
Your echo in the air —
Portrait on the wall, listen, you
Are here.
Because,
I can’t let go,
Memories in me flow,
Portrait on the wall, listen, you
Are here.

This poem is the first of my attempts to combine and present #cinquain poetry in a ghazal style (last line of each verse similar in all verses). I can only hope it is acceptable to fellow poets and appealing.
My wife lost her battle with cancer three years ago, on May 5th, 2014. She was only forty-two years old. She left behind two very young daughters and memories of her with me. I dedicate this poem to her memories.

#573 — Winds Of Time;

These transient winds,
Have transformed me,
To an ascetic,
All I possess now,
Are memories of moments,
With which I stir the fire,
And smile at the sparks
That rise from it.

#545 — Surrender;

Do you remember,
Carrying me on your wings,
To the moon?
Do you remember,
Counting one …. two … and
Pushing me from above,
And my fading voice,
As I fell into the ocean below,
And drowned?
