The Hint Of You
The stillness of the leaves became a shadow,
I waited for the earth to sing its song
And felt the summer heat begin its fading
As hints of autumn moved the day along.
I searched for words that could express my feelings
As time turned into memory once more
But blankness touched the book I’d hoped to write in
And silence seemed to block the artist’s door.
I reached into my dreams and saw you dancing
Through a rain swept forest just at dawn
And felt my spirit join you on your journey.
The hint of you stays with me though you’re gone.
Born in Calgary, Alberta, Pam Murray has been writing poetry since the mid-1960’s. She was married for over 41 years and has two daughters, a son-in-law, and a grandson. Pam has been published in a variety of venues. Her proudest writing accomplishment was a poem she wrote for a United Way fundraiser, which was later framed with a French translation and hung on the wall of the legislature in Ottawa, Canada. To her, poetry is a transposition of a vision she sees in her mind. Writing and crocheting are her passions.
