So Long, Leonard

This poem is dedicated in memory of Leonard Cohen. One of the Great ones.

I can smell
the cigarette
smoke
in your voice.
The shade of dark blue you wear,
so dark
it’s almost black,
is the vision I
witness
When I close my eyes.
And within
the depths of this blue
I see smoke
Unfurl
Words
And I am reminded
of how much
you loved them.
You treated them
Like children,
So tenderly
was the way
they emanated from you,
I hope
the place you’ve gone to
Is as blessed as we have been
to be swayed by your words.

  1. I can smell the cigarette smoke in your voice… That is some beautiful synaesthesia right there. 🙂
