A Poem by Sandy Benitez


We exchanged our pain
after the third Autumn 
of our acquaintance.
I located your heart 
beneath the engima 
of your words,
poems that scattered 
like monarchs
upon a pale grey sky 
of dreams.
I have never held a net
but in my quest 
for beauty of your kind 
I become the hunter 
in my red poppy dress,
capturing pieces of you 
along the meadow's edge.
The puzzle of you evades me
and you splinter
into tinier fragments
I cannot decipher.
