Legacy-A Lanterne Sequence--By Brian Strand--England

Legacy-A Lanterne Sequence

Our
fragrance
lingers on
within those we
rear,
sweet
smelling
if in God we
fear-
and
above
hovering
blessing as a
dove,
our
bios
dissipate-
into those we
love

  2. Hello, Brian, welcome to Whispers! Your poem defines beautifully the bond within generations and this holy and kind of abstract, because initially life is an abstract, holds the true key to life in its palm.......... hope to have the opportunity to read more! Sheri / www.poetryandbeyond.net

  4. Dear Brian,
    It's so nice to read your work again. I agree with the insight in this poem. Part of us lingers on in family members long after we are gone. You expressed it in a beautiful way!

    Love always to a great poet,
    Carolyn
