A Spark In The Middle Of Forever - Poem by Patti Masterman

The faces of stars just look like time,
For a long time now uncounted;
While you're floating, unconcerned-
A spark in the middle of forever

On an island, that's nowhere,
In the middle of some November-
A million years longer than ever-so-long;
In a heedlessly simple, unsong song.

    Haunting and beautiful. I had to reread it several times because it hit me in that particular way. (Report) Reply
