The First Time You Saw Your Parents Smile , by pd Lyons

The First Time You Saw Your Parents Smile

in the month of strawberries

when you were born

tender lips of your mother pressed as if to savour  

something cool and soothing.

your father held you up to the night sky

compared you to stars.


you didn’t cry but rather open mouth drooled.



Ghosts of My Summers, by pd lyons




Ghosts of My Summers

Ghosts of my summers walk by
Long pink skirts trail
Roads of my youth
Still there, yet some what changed
As if each and every memory plays out again
This time
A different boy
Meets a different girl
Once you
Once me
Still June.
