On butterfly wings.
A brush so quick
That it’s hard to tell it happened,
Leaving us to hope for recovery.
In shadowy silence
Stretching minutes into ages
Until any resolution becomes welcome
And fear is lost in agony.
In forsaken ground
Written in the rocks.
And we feel it in the casseroles brought by strangers.
And we eat alone.
Yet Death fails
For it has lost it’s victory
And though a mortal thread is severed
Its life keeps living beyond the grave
In a world of tomorrows.
