Smokey Reflection

I remember the smoke
that curled slyly around your scalp
where your hair had long since departed
with the freckles that marched along
your sun-streched head.

You had a smile when I saw you.
But I could tell it only lingered
for my content amusement.
Then disappeared on the taunt lips
that lovingly held your cigarette.

  An interesting short piece. You've done well here, you actually capured something that when i read made me think about my uncle, my grandad, i didn't really know, but my great uncle was an awesome substitute. There is no fault i can pick, you've done it so well. You kept it short, yet filled it with with thoughts and feeling. A poem to challenge poets everywhere.

  A few moments caught in time. Such a simple memory, yet so descriptive. These are the kind that stay with you forever.

Great job an a simple, not overdone piece.

  Wow this is great. This is what poetry should be. You could say:

My granddad... I like him.

But what you do here is capture a moment and place it straight into your heart yet share it with the world.

Simply beautiful

  Yep... you just decribed everything i remember about my grandma... i remember the smell of smoke, big hair, and that Marlboro haze about her... Wasn't the prettiest of memories but it's all i got and i'm glad i got it... This poem was very well done. simple yet the profound imagery was enough to allow the reader to be drawn in throught the read... well done my friend... thanks for reminding me of my memories... take care... and don't let unwanted people into your house...

  This is the most touching and well written piece I have read today. It is compact,descriptive,says a lot without overstating details or unneeded details.

***I applaud you****
