Waltzing with Widow’s tears – Sandra Lindow

We                                                               who
were soul mates in so        many ways could not
learn to waltz                              together.
That formal                             fragile fitting
of body                into body
could not be mastered.
Now I bend
to waltz
with
Widow’s Tears,
named
for
their
unplanned
blooms,
the
irrevocable
division
of the
leaves
separ-
ating
flower
from
flower.
