perilous

fortune
never lasts for long
swirling in my cup
chamomile
and curses each goodbye
leaves
and lockets
someone breathed
into a braid of wishes
lilac blooms
would haunt the snow
with briar
by and by

stories
I can ne’er decide
where the past was ended
chapter twenty two
and still I grieve
ashes hold the only proof
letters e’er were written –
secrets kept in
cedar –
fade but never leave

miracle
of almost when
deeper love becoming
fragile as a web
of spinner’s lace
ribbons never lasted long
tied
untied –
remembered
moments of surrender
burdened not by place

sentiment
of bursting hearts –
souls the night comes raining
lanterns of the eastern sky
heaven follows near
as one before
the garden grew
from mystery and maybes
lights along the headboard
ashes falling here
