Longing / Poem by Dinka Bednjacic (Australia)

Poem by Dinka Bednjacic
 
 
Longing
 
Have you ever
gazed at a woman
a mirror image of you
brushing a child’s
untangled hair
Touching, tenderly
its shoulders
Listening to her soft
tuneful voice –
Like I have,
hiding behind
the aged juniper tree
Wishing….
Longing….
that the child sitting in her lap
was….me….
