Burning Bridges

The start.
The end.

The surreptitious silence a space scape for this lucid wanderer
Flowing whispers of the finest feathered texture the contour of my view.

looks at
the hands. ..

Laying down staring at stars
the space between colored nightly dark
the emptiness echoing atomic vacuum
atoms replaced

i am not what i used to be.

remember to look
at the hands ...

seven years
since last
we were
when i dream you now
are you the same?
or have we become
what i always wanted to be?
in your absence
have we grown stronger
if only in the realm
illuminated by the moon

talk about coincidence
i spent most of the night awake
sailing like boats on songs
in a wave upon the wind
hearing whispers of the finest texture
flowing unison of feathered landscape
the contours of my view
dreaming crazy dreams
of lace-lined veils and powdered faces
floating shadows entwined in laughter
the start and end of slumber
brown eyed convincing stare
searching for the gate
square portals through the roof
and ragged guardian angels
which lead me to cowless pastures
and hear the detail
in a wave upon the wind
16 degrees seems cooler than it feels
strange looks from a youth
in a wave upon the wind
brown eyed convincing stare
as i try and hide within my hat
a little less conspicuous
newspaper lies untidy
vowing always: they will come
