Embers


Memories

Embers

Opus 37

Watching a campfire,
The embers glowing in the darkness
Transfixed
Mesmerized
The memories come back to me
Like the experiences themselves
Glowing with the warmth
Of our friendship.
Memories:
That day we met
The candlelight dinners
Hiking
Talking to geese,
And deer
Sharing a meal in the woods
Our conversation
The warmth of your smile
Memories:
Each one fading with
The dying embers.

The ashes are still warm,
Like the fading memory.

Love brings it back to me
And the fire rekindles!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
