shadowed backdrop

I sit down, relating to the beauty
found

upon the flowers in the nearby park
a connection deep

and stark

perfuse
with fragrances misting through the air
alighting

with the greatest of care
and devotion, making me grin

as elation comes up

and I witness the sun hiding in the shadowed backdrop

blood and dust

residing in the night
are you

always there, steadfast
through your heart of care

I write from my soul
to share

a thought

built out of love, trust
and a common ground forged

through blood and dust

a reminiscence, like the sultry
taste of your skin

delivered
over the many years spent apart

drifting

like the sea again
I find you, the sky within

deep down

pain and trauma dwell within trees
just like they do

in you and me, a casual
acquaintance

made from the threads of the breeze

Can you see that we’ve always been, and will always be
part of the same stream?

then, why, I wonder, do we treat nature
differently

estranged and placated
we push away connections

deemed unnecessary

only they are, in fact
a comisc part

of a grand narrative, the seen and unseen
and everything

deep down

we believe ourselves to be

cosmic eyes

broken hearts of the wind

are gentle, in times when strings are
thin, and fierce

as we gather the materials within

to live, love, and laugh at the sky

reminding me

of how hard we all try
even when we want to shout

we can still let it go by

with a pause, and a breath
watching the waves wash over our missteps

revealing, and relating

the nature of the cosmos in your eyes

of a love

that always shines

we’ll always share

weeds feed
my dreams, in a
cavalcade of screams,
while the
majesty in-between, is
just as it seems

rocking back,
and forth
on the porch,
sitting, and
staring at the dead, it dreams

like another reality
altogether, as
birds fly back,
and forth, mirroring
my actions,
without
the necessary transcendence

of being…

felt, not felt,
smothering
like a fleece blanket
on top of
the history
we’ve shared together

recalled,
less enthralled,
I walk towards you
with love in my
heart, stopped,
attracted, less
retracted,
without a stare,
only ever a deeply felt care,
we’ll always share
