In Remembrance

setting sun
              toes in

sea-sweet wine
             as I saunter

plodding through

            knee-deep rhyme

waltzing thoughts


you kept my
in your pocket

         (and some
                    loose change)

Now, three quarters

                       and a dime

skip like rocks



Posted for dVerse Poets Pub where Bjorn
asks us to follow the beat of a waltz. 
A waltz signifies any piece of music in
three quarters time. Even if I missed 
a few beats, I did include
three actual quarters (and a dime!) ๐Ÿ’—

    1. So good to hear! I wasn’t sure I could pull this waltz off this week. I generally don’t like to follow forms of any kind. But this was fun! ๐Ÿ’

  1. Oh, so nicely done, Tricia! I love the rhythm rhyme, interwoven humour and wistfulness in this poem, especially โ€˜sea-sweet wineโ€™ and the goldfish in the pocket nibbling dust!

  2. Excellently done, in form, shape and subject. Who would keep your goldfish in his/her pocket? That sounds like unforgivable behaviour!
