Cyrilla -The Woman in the Mist #poetry #nationalpoetrymonth


Taken by surprise I see her

the woman in the mist

a smile fused with love

Reaching out to her

I grasp a small hand

the woman in the mist

we walk and talk about life’s ups and downs

she listens as she always has

the woman in the mist

of my loss she understands

I awaken from a beautiful dream

that is springlike warm and green

the woman in the mist

she queries of her boys

and her heart’s desire

I assure her they are fairing well

the woman in the midst

our time escapes too soon

I will wait another year

for a moment with a friend so dear

the woman in the mist

Dedicated to my friend Cyrilla whose birthday we celebrate her memory will never fade from those she loves

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Oh, that is just beautiful.

    A gift to all who knew her. The Eastern Churches pray “May her memory be eternal” for she will remain while there are those who remember her.
