Wishful Thinking

the scent of

honeysuckles

 

a fleeting glimpse

into a time in

youth when purity

came in small doses

 

maybe this reminder will be

somewhat sufficient to guide me

 

back to innocence

When Years Ago Become Now

calm sprouting breeze

benevolent winds

breeze but struggle because

a visible person

another form

a connection, a power attained

through the intangible untangle

the roots.

 

Accomplish clarity.

To continue and then struggle.

Repetition, (or the new).

And contradiction, (or the new truth).

Bleeding out because

there’s not much time.

 

sap drips

drip drop down

trunk droop

eventually

seep in soil.

 

 

Swinging limbs swaying limbs

seeing when trees are alien(s).

Swinging and swaying-

you are old, tree.

 

Abstract becomes concrete (wood) remorse degrades

(decay) the human-

Current shut off.
