Word(s) . Light . Life



Water’s soft edge
Tolled, the lake’s
Echoing bell, adrift
Carrying lost laughter
Spilling it over rocks
Of nonsensical days,
Afloat, the two of them
Aloud, spouting jokes
No one else cared about
In times before wars
And now, long shores
Lapped concentric
Circles, winding closer
As if life held tightly
Gripping them to shore
Apart, but no longer far
Speechless, they listened
Everything clearer
In the wake of
Whatever came before

Time stranded itself
Hung up the phone
On lost conversations

No one could hold blame
For too-tangled vines
Lost words unspoken

Hearing his laugh
The music loosed bonds
As if he held her still

Somewhere beyond time
And Earth’s raw rumbling
Slopes and limestone hills

Holding on forever
Cold harvests hushed
And always, more light

She heard him whisper
Things would be alright
