I hear her name on the wind..........poetry

A photo of a condor over the grand canyon

At the ocean when the salt wind lays in the sand
alone through the still of night

or when the cool breezes of September
awaken for the stars just right

sometimes I do hear her name in the softness
of blowing winds

and for just awhile the name lingers and her
perfume tempts me to remember old sins

yet the last thought when it happens is
of her leaving like the summer sun

and like old memories that falter the old pain of
remembering comes undone

I believe remembering old loves can come
and go as a gentle cooling wind

And when those memories finally stop
a life or a love may begin again

Timely for those with summer jobs that led to summer romances. Some few will survive the end of summer. The rest will survive only in the memories of one or both.
