Villanelle: Descansos Pummeled, Winds of Early Spring

P1070704

Descansos pummeled, winds of early spring,

bait and stir ghosts never old,

a bird flies alone, what song does it sing?

P1070703

Here spirit flew as if in a dream,

they’ll return until their stories are told,

descansos pummeled, winds of early spring

P1070516

Mothers weep for those taken wing,

oh seeking one, the nest will grow cold,

descansos pummeled, winds of early spring

P1070711

Grandmothers cross hearts, beads on a string,

welcoming buds in purple and gold,

a bird flies alone, what song does it sing?

P1070519

Kindness, unexpected, makes my heart sting,

trumpets blow, life never grows old,

a bird flies alone, what song does it sing?

P1070713
