A MEMORY OF FRIENDS

Pinned to walls of apartment
Halls leading to rooms of
Mansions
Where friends make their homes
Sometimes wings clipped fit
Inside frames - image stuffed
In sleeves of albums
Hidden where subatomic nuclear
Energies spin bonding our
Nostalgic histories together
By irretrievable misadventure
I am spinning here as though
I were there -hoping
To find spirit again
Both here and there -as though
A passenger invisible
On a Love Train
Spinning out to quanta edges
We are never left here alone
So tomorrow we will appear
Together
In another ‘Spacetime'
As spirits in a cloud pinned
To dust walls - I am here and
There -and you are there
And here -we must have
Forgotten our ‘Spacetime'
Departures and arrivals
We misstep on trains
But never slip
Returning to our lover.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
