“Traces of Love” is an offering from my book Heart Songs, Collected Poems of Nina Serrano, 1969-1979. Over the decades of reading poetry in public I seldom include my very short poems. Yet they are some of my favorites. The Nina Serrano website brings these under one minute poems to you for the first time. The poems are enhanced with music and visuals by community artists included in wonderful videos that you can watch here or on your phone or tablet wherever you are. Please share them with your friends, family and community.

My Short Poem Videos are produced and edited by Estuary Press as a collaboration between Paul Richards, Estuary Press, and me.  My thanks to John Cowan for the music. Enjoy them!

Traces of Love

Souvenirs of gentle feelings
Flowing currents
in the endless cycle
from a stream
to a teardrop.
