A Time Before

 

Nancy

 

 

Sky of stone

A pebbled strand

 

Solitude’s cinders

A castaway’s camp

 

The track of steps

To water’s edge and back

And back

 

~

 

Darkness

Unfolds to light

Before you

 

A sunless river

Sparkles

Claim it yours

Rescue

Hopeless dreams

Share the lonely secrets

Thoughts drowned in blue-green depths

 

Speak my name

 

Erase all time before 

You
