Four Poems by Cindy Bousquet Harris: "Fade to Spring", "They Say", "Voices

Fade to Spring

(Inspired by a painting by Ramón Chirinos.)

Shadows condense

to wide-weave lace,

grey and blooming

in the garden of clouds,

a window curtained

by icicle rain,

outside, tables wait

imagined in winter light.

_________

They Say

They say you’re there

but I can’t see you,

they say

you’re everywhere,

I feel alone,

but I believe you;

I reach out

and you are there.

__________

Voices in Paradise

(A “found” poem, composed of words from “Westways:

The Magazine for Auto Club Members”.)

Lost bones,

windows

for the journey.

What’s rising?

A soul,

voices in paradise,

good news.

_________

Light Effect

Light points to my flaws,

peels my skin; there I am

exposed, forgiven.
