adoration in memoriam

IMG_8944

–you and that gentleness,
that grace, and that small silent space
at the back of fourth row,
that peaceful gaze
out of the capiz shell windows,

–your fragile wrist,
the smallness of your hands,
how you cradled petals
in your palm,
how you willed the world
to your command,

–your elegant mind,
your intellectual earth,
those small notes of beauty,
the power of femininity
the whole world in reverse
