Peace Lily

too late
to start over…

even the stems
of my peace lily
have turned

this baggage
I no longer wish
to carry…

the last downpour
from torrential skies

I skim through life
like a ripple...

could I have loved

my heart to a standstill...

after all these years
the well has drawn

the echo
of a faraway bird
reaches me...

someday I'll find it
in my heart to forgive

Shloka Shankar
& Christine L. Villa
