Memorization – by Paul Stokstad

Posted on Sep 1, 2017 by in October 2017 |

It may seem sometimes
that I have forgotten her
or her, or her

but there are times
when a twirl of leaves
in the air
reminds me of someone
beautiful, spinning
in our dance

or maybe there’s
a grey mist
for which
only one other
would care

Or driving past
a childhood street
where long ago
there was a hand in hand

when you see
an older man
what you don’t see
is all the gifts
in the form of kisses
hidden in his smile
