Isabel’s Glass

1 Comment


In frosted glass

Sun slipping slowly

Revisiting the west

Blackberry, current

Lemony, acrid cedar

Snow falling as pages

Unwritten love notes

Grapes crushed into

Sauvignon and Syrah

Houselights dimming

She alone on centre stage

Long seasons past

When abloom as violets

She had hummed lyrics

Wondering now and again

About their forgotten song

Love lost , found, then lost

He visited her at times

Alone in dreams

No longer with excuses

Mostly in winter

When the world slowed

Almost to a standstill

And let her believe in light

Born from darkness

She had loved his ability

To make her laugh

At nothing whatsoever

And how he had promised once

That no matter where she went

He’d reach out somehow

Across great canyons…to find her
