Poetry Sunday: Memories of Green




Forty-one years ago today, the love of my life was born. I wrote this poem especially for my one and only Zuzu. Happy Birthday, Binky!

Memories of Green

If I remember nothing else
from my life with you
I will remember
green

Your eyes
on our first night
the way they caught fire
when I asked you
if you had any passions

Your eyes
during our darkest days
the way they declare
that you will fight
for this, for us

Your eyes
during our brightest times
the way they dance
when you laugh with me
as if nobody else can hear

If I remember nothing else
on the day that you were born
I will celebrate
green
