Dear Memories,

Dear Memories,

Why don’t you stay a while

And engrave those last moments

Of fleeting folds of summer sun

Fading/piercing darts warm

Dancing amber grass

In blue sky

In laughter/in liquid heart

 

Just let me look back

To those endless fathoms/swelling/aching

Breathing in days etched with

Every step

Every pebbled pathway

Every forested trail

That swayed and moved and yearned and lingered

In soft curves

Just let me look back

Without crumbling

To ash.

 

Give me one last second

To hope/gaze/dream/behold

Fire that devours

Breathes

Strips me of all sanity

Believing I can do anything

Keeping me kindled until daybreak

Embers/embracing/savoring

Accelerated heartbeat

Forgiving, needing

Just one last day

To plead with eternity.

 

And if this be the twilight of our memories

An apparition of time

In the cold/dark night waning

With only a final fading glimpse

To say good bye to me,

A lonely cliff,

A solitary mountain

An empty sea,

A withering branch on a fruited tree

Or if it seems I don’t even live

In reality

Then let me be

A pilgrim on the threshold of change

Choosing to be still

Choosing to be quiet

Waiting to be set free

Of your Reminiscent beauty.

 

Yours Truly,

 

 

 

 

Earth Turn


 

It’s been a while since the earth drew me to her arms

Like a river current pulling me gently along,

A while since those internal strings sang so slowly

As the earth turned, and water spiraled,

and sunlight spread her fingers through the trees

leaving summer shadows fluttering to let go.
