Monthly poem - August

ABOVE GROUND

I was above ground,
you lay unreachable
in your deep latitude.

The fuchsia on your grave,
its screwed hoods
were all grace and servitude;

it seemed to represent
our love, my gift,
your gratitude.

Blood red,
the drooping heads
hid unforeseen vicissitude

and the higher place
I had to reach
to gain the necessary altitude.

Jehane Markham is a true poet...
her poems glow like impressionist paintings.

Love wells up out of Jehane Markham's work... it made me cry.
