#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.

#614 — Silence;

No sound,
Neither footfall,
Not a whisper of breath,
But I know you are here always,
Near me.

#579 — Fall From Grace;

This world,
Fallen from grace,
Beckon me to its ways,
Her enchanting voice whisper to,
My heart.

#556 — Presence;

The fleeting time,
Has wreaked the night,
And in its silence,
There’s not even a whisper,
But, I know you are here,
Somewhere.
