Tababuie Golden Rain

Poem By Liilia Talts Morrison

Late March brings bursts of golden rain
A million petals dance and glide
In showers from a boundless source
As tababuies preen in Spring

The wind persuades the blooms to fly
Soon carpeting lawns, streets and lanes
They cloak the ground with yellow joy
So fleeting, delicate, yet real

Abundant is their flowering
Exploding from trees known to heal
Yet no one notes a single bloom
Amid a sea of richest quilts

Each smiling flower has one day
To spread its magic to the land
The earth by morning will embrace
Those golden messengers of Spring

They say the tababuie tree
Is sacred in its healing ways
Its bark, its sap, its leaves and blooms
Cure natives bound with tropic plagues

There’s something in me craves and needs
To dwell in warmth of clime and hue
To find relief in humid nights
And mark my days like blossoms spent

Spring rains bring fleeting showers rare
Cascading flakes to earth they fly
In yellow bursts of petals fair
So bright against a teal blue sky.

Bell Of Truth

The sound of truth rings like a bell
with perfect pitch and timeless knell

There are no jarring overtones


A woman friend the other day
said someone left her stranded
the person moved to other scenes
the parting had been candid

A Candle Burns

A candle burns and melts away
its stately form transforming
but to a fleeting memory
of warmth and welcome glowing

Dreams Remembered

Dreams remembered dreams forgotten
From mind's deepest caves begotten
Harsh kaleidoscopic showers
Bursting forth in midnight hours

Baltic Sea 1944

Cold of night is slowly sinking
Cruel tons of steel upending
Sounds of agony soon blending
Liquid graves yawn muted endings.

Michael, Tall And Fair

God bless you Michael, tall and fair,
You were the brightest one.
You always were a hero
Gracing our lives with song.
