Letters to Sharon 8.17.09


Your face,
like the rings
inside trees,
measures my years,
measures my dreams,
measures the distance
of just how far
I fell short.
Your arms, I once walked to
only to wander away,
lay helpless,
tired from another long day.
Our ties slowly fraying,
with each trip
we take
around the sun,
from the weight,
and the bitter taste,
of all that can't be
undone.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
