poetry & things

Vastness of forever

They came to visit me in a dream

mother and grandmother, sitting on the lawn

The earth spun quickly, they so delighted did not notice

Only spoke of gardens, tomatoes ripening on the vine,

laughing, rolling in grass, dresses green stained

My tears deep as wells, went empty in life’s longings

My arms became flowered stems

for them to gaze upon,

to love silently,


I saw dust sparkles fly all around us,

through trees, clouds, rooftops – all things

I saw them fly off too, sparkling

realizing so soon such dust

we all become
