Poem: Smoke Circles
Written by Maria Miraglia
Recited by Anca Mihaela Bruma


A cigarette lighted
in the dark and
the memories of
some others smoked

A puff after puff
and I let me go
looking at the circles
of smoke rising up
in the evening air
to soon after vanish away

But, not the memories
flowing in the mind
fresh and clear
as the waters
of a mountain stream
albeit distant
in space and time

Faces of beloved
their shapes
their pleased glances
are there with me

And smiles
sometimes sad
sometimes sweet
appear on my face
in the silence of
the quiet night

And I feel then the emotions
and can hear
as from a distant echo
the exchanged words
everything returning
as the sequences
of an old movie
thought forgotten.
