Poem a Day/ April 10th, 2011 – Eryk Wenziak


BLACK TULIPS/ Erick Wenziak

the memories return
like they do every year at
this time black tulips
breaking through the cold
wet morning soil
fighting for the first rays
of a lonely sun

SPEAK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE/ Eric Wenziak

so sorry. i love you, read her text
as he stood at the altar
waiting for his best friend’s bride
to walk down the aisle
