Visions From A Snow Globe World - Poem by Kay Gardner

The world will remember you-

Eyes that stare straight through ice
And into snow that covers discouragement-
Change comes
But does not stay away
It only lingers long enough for us to grow accustomed
(and you said forever) .

Life is short stories set inside a dream
And we make promises
As we walk away from the flame
Of crimson blue
Terrified and ecstatic all at once
And searching for valediction

We run from explosions and desperately
Cling to stationed moments of brief bliss
Hiding from the pictures that time our breath
Those black and white memories shadowed in color-
Laughter is the mind's greatest trick

Coming to grips with the story in your last moment
Touch is familiar and focus live long inside our hearts
Smiling in mists of distorted images

-The world will not remember you
