a view from across the room


memorial lunch

grim expressions

and dark clothes

tears brushed away

in secret

burial of body….

memories burning forward

faraway eyes

only where

thoughts are revealed

of many places

of many things


for each

so many possibly intertwined pasts

earliest childhood to adulthood


not one

seemed to mind

the empty seat

memories, keepsakes

regrets, things not all settled

regrets, things not said

looks beyond hard cold marble

Bridges Ahead



as if voice in fading

spanning time, and places

so long ago



just a quick glance back

stolen glances, from yesteryear

time-linking fabric



In taking forward for what is of the now

an ever deepening respect for what was then

of People,  Times, and Places all so very yet Dear
