Haiku My Heart

A relatively new friend. I've been around her for a while but it wasn't until recently that I started noticing something. Then today it hit me. She looks so much like my mother, it just takes my breath away.

MARGARITA


I noticed today
Peggy, that you look just like
my departed mom

Vivid Italian
Plus fiery Mexican
Two might-have-been friends

Perception rises
From beneath languid surface
I catch my breath. Sigh

Is this your aunt? Maybe your friend?
