The Oak Tree IV



Not one, but two shadows cast onto the ground

The oaks stand vowed apart in pride

Beautifully synchronised

Too stubborn to reach out to touch


As the seasons pass, they spy and hide

With no eyes to watch each other

Fluttering leaves whisper between their worlds

time momentarily stops


Don’t forget….


Dream with me now,   

And when I meet you on the road to nowhere, remember me. 
And when I ask for your safety, save me. 
And when I ask for your forgiveness, forgive me. 
And when I ask for your beauty, bury me.   
And if I ask you for your love,   
Then I will know that something is already broken.*


Don’t forget….


And when the clouds cross each full moon

It shines its magical light on the both of them

renewing the mutual commitment

to their field of loneliness

You compose fluidly with a haunting beauty that eludes most writers. Your diction delights, your structure woos and the hidden drummer within your lines pulses like a heart.

And I'm done. Can't believe I've really said that - but I'm not changing it.

Moving On

Time stops
Dreams begin
Magical love
Fluttering leaves
New start
Time then
Moves on.
