immortal

within these strains
of mortal breath –
my soul is rarely free
yet takes of all
the earth and sky –
one moment to conceive
where blossoms fell
another burst –
within this realm of sight
darkness dreams
a brighter morn –
beyond this chilly night

before and still
my cup refilled
to overflow with grace –
kept as not a moment
still for long
born to names
were never meant
to hide my wilderness
witness to a bloom
no longer known

another life
another me –
shall ever grieve this sun
was passed between
the moon –
beyond the barn
petals of november frost
claim my weary heart
circle now the memory
of one

. . .
