Poetry

December 2016

A courteous reception to a visitor,

One cyclamen in a bud vase,

The first page to a song book

Solemnizing scribbling weakening at the end.

 

A curious Platonic thought, the transience

Of an almost posthumous whisper I once heard

From particles of light in the great darkness;

So we bear witness to what is beyond us.
