If you knew what you lost
The feisty river, its obstreperous rippling shores seem content to let go:
as turbulent waters edge past the eager bending shrubs-
they just flow, endless and eternal to ends best unfathomed.
The hands, they refrain and shiver at touch;
warmth forever- a reassurance that binds the fleeing heart,
a bed of flowers: anarchic, disharmonious
yet the ethereal fragrance; the magnificence may long sustain
what one lost.
Purity- where innocence shall rest;
the austere sky keeps on wandering through forgotten lands;
until the river and bed of flowers converge, submerging conscience’s monologue:
They stay on- obscure;
one and the same.
