Passing By


coloring book
the crayons please

plinking the piano keys
just passing by

tree in the forest
xxx & initials too

pin pricks in the night sky
connecting the dots

6 after-diner mints
arranged in geometric style

footprints in the dust

we come and go
branding the empty places

drifting memories
life simply rearranged

a path of our own
beyond the hills

That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
