the street

it’s a nameless street
looks very much like others i’ve traveled
flowers bordering it may have names
but i never learned them
                  because you knew them
                          and could recite them easily
a street that has lasted
through named hurricanes
and being pummeled
by anonymous hailstones
a street that tempts me
with imagery waiting to be written
because it is the street
that always brings me back
to the memory of you

dear Lydi... I am reminded of the song
from My Fair Lady, entitled "On the street
where you live". My cousin David and his
sister Linda and I shared our childhood.
Now, they are both laid to rest in the
poetic cornfields where we played
and dreamed of our future families.
Your poem has crossed my heart in
familiar ways. truly... Pat

Very kind of you to say. thanks.
hello, I trust you remomerated your cousin very beautifully in this piece. I kind of liked to be the cousin yu wrote this for since it was very tauchy and impressive. the street you have talked about is just a symbol or badge through which you can relate to the person you miss. the street is just like anything else we as humans need to allude to the things we miss or lost for a while. thank you and best luck.
