David Lacey Poems
Memory Slips As Memory Fades
Alas I know not where to go, for all the places I know, I've been.
Alas I have been shown not where to go nor can I remember all I've seen.
Memory slips as memory fades as shades they flip exposed to flames.
As insects roast upon the embers of the fire,
A blaze trailed through the void of darkness,
Breathing destruction upon dry bone leaves,
Bearing down destruction upon well established trees.
The crown of the forest resides his power
Biding his time awaiting the shower of inferno
Gatherings as the elders race forever young towards
the fountain groves ...
A call in the night awakens you to loneliness.
Don’t forget the Frog King for he lay placid
In the valley breeding inertia. Unforgiving.
Always dreaming of a form greater than that
Of our own within which we believe we would
Find the confidence to embrace the year a new
We will never be anywhere but blue.
