#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.

#623 — Nowhere;

Restless,
And on the run,
These paths longer than life,
Twisting and turning, they lead me,
Nowhere.

#622 — Rogue;

The rogue,
Who stole my heart,
Parts my eyelids and peeps,
Only to laugh at me and run,
Again.

#609 — Fate;

Fate — you stranger,
won’t you be mine again?
Why must you for a moment,
Come to me,
To run away the next,
Only to rush back to me again?
Fate — you stranger,
With me forever,
Yet, destined for another
