some trials
were given to me young
yet also
this gift of faith

country graves
silk flowers bloom
by the stones

seasons repeat
we tell the stories
we are given

“seasons repeat” was published first in Mayfly, Winter 2015.

Garden Tea Party by Charles A. Waugaman

Listen to the leaves
of robin song
spill into the rain:

parched dreams expanding
and staining the
long afternoon with

poignant fragrances:
blending past and
hope with vibrant joy.
