These Afternoons

Science fiction puddles

Whodunit tattoos

Old pants

Pathos

Coffee grinder

To sit quietly
And remember
The shadows of the heart.
A sea above the stars.

Till you are nothing more
Than a memory yourself.

You are at sea
And above
The stars.

  1. Lovely! You deleted a segment since I first looked at it. I wonder why. I hope the segment you deleted might reappear as a poem on its own. I do think these two stand alone well. The ideas are more obviously linked than in some of your work. For me this part is outstanding.

    1. Thank you! Yes, I did delete a third part. I wasn’t sure about it. And I’m always self conscious. So I decided to play around with it some more before posting it. Thank you again. I’m glad you liked it.
