Lilac Memories

The April breeze 
Jostles the tender blooms, 
Carrying the fragrant 
Remnant of a memory,  
Perfume lessening 
The sting of our last goodbye.

Lovely! You reawaken my memory of the garden I left behind a year ago. Ah!

May the April breeze last until the end of March!

In just a few words, you have expressed the pain of parting--and the promise of recovery from that pain.
