nearlynow (2)

stay
with me the longer
of days
a mayfly knew
than ribbons curling red
around my heart
stay
and I will promise
another life
or two –
poems seeking
yet a place
to start

stay
the fragile winter
as round the chimney
rings
blue with smoke
burning autumn leaves
stay
the sweat of almost
one july
we ran away –
chasing us a dream
of honeybees

stay
where words are silenced
by whispers now again –
take the key
but leave the night ajar
open to your places
leaving traces
everywhere
morning wrapped
in wishes –
ancient stars
