lilacs

lilac

memories
of memories
lilacs in bloom

ancient lilacs
cover the graves
Memorial Day

old lilacs in fog
promises of God
still holding true

knowing
they cannot stay
but will return
lilacs

young trees grow
alongside the old

old lilacs
bloom anew
their deep roots

arriving home
more primroses
in bloom
