Evening Light

August 21, 2022
                      paints long stripes across a lawn
                      glistening with recent rain

                           fills a cherry tree with flame
                           gathers and glows in a glass
                           engraved with two names.

                                One has taken flight
                                and one remains.

From my most recent small edition, Shining Sister. Lettering by John Rowlands-Pritchard. Poem first published in the anthology “Light”, from Black Light Engine Room, 2020.

    Lovely, holding a gradual melancholy.
