when you stop for a moment
to consider
joy~ forced or real
all is well

did you wonder
what the time meant
when the minute of a dream
turned over on the clock of reality?

evening shadow
slanted low
i wonder what lies
on the other side
one single impression

i shed the weight
in honest words
of true contrition
& made light

the answer:
a poetry of still hummingbirds
& roses
washed up on the beach
a desire to hear
the chanted psalms
ancient tongue by candlelight
to lean against the masonry
of millenia
long settled places...
as i pluck
the last rose of summer
before the chill wind does
i hear no more sound
save the severed vine
(the silence of hurt)

be not afraid
of time spent
stewing in magnificent turmoil
just live
& breathe
