Walking Long Blocks with
All The Years Written in Tall
Trees and Small Houses

Grief Unpacked Its Bags,
A Sudden and Unwanted Guest
With No Plans to Leave

Loss on Every Shelf
Sorrow in Every Drawer
Pain Beneath the Bed

We Could Not Quite Breathe
Wondering if That Moment
Might Not Ever End

But Time Does Still Pass
And Grief Turned Towards Us With
All Its Open Heart

And We Also Found
Among the Sorrow and Loss
A Shining Honor

The Consolations
Of Shared Memories, the Breath
Of Persistent Love

So It Turns Out That
This Life is not Perfect and
Grief is not a Guest

But Our Souls do Rise
To Every Occasion and
Our Hearts Will Reach Out

And We Will Carry
Honor, Memory, and Love
As We Find Our Way

Between Mountain Tops
A Broad Green Valley Stretches
Beneath Bluest Skies

We Will Cross Those Fields
Step by Step Packing Water,
Food, and History

After all is seen
Wilderness Remains Beyond
The Grasp of Visions

All That History,
Love and Loss, in Daily Bread
And Sunday Dinners

Flung Forward By Time,
Willed Life Shattering Into
A Kind of Foundling

It Seems Impossible.
This is Real And That Is Not,
Then Followed By Now

Before and After,
Always Together, Always
Apart, And That Line.

Today Ragged Clouds
Rushed by Like Time Passing or
Distances Traveled.

In Their Flat Grey Light
I Felt Memories Stir and
Tumble, but Slower

And Tonight I Cooked
A Dish We Shared When There Was
No Time or Distance

We talked of Losing
And of Keeping, Endurance
And No Conclusions

Talked of Your Freckles,
Of Food, And Other Delights
Real or Just Desired

It Had Been Awhile
But Still We Talked Easily
Across All The Gaps
