You dropped from the heavens

my peripatetic friend

took me boldly by the hand

and led me round your

joyous garden

calling in along the way

to chat to friends, but not to stay

wandering on and on

wisdom is your guide

and peace your bride

I will join you on your journey

keep you company, if you like

we can part from each other's side

and any time meet up again

to recount our own little story,

and as we come to the end

don't shed a tear

we have learnt and lived

and we will leave it there

slowly melt into the earth

to be reborn and to continue

our wanderings in another form.


◄ Adieu, but not forever

No Silence ►

Life's a somatic risk in the bliss of the chorus,

Like a poetic wisp in the midst of the forest.


Well done on a beautiful piece, Jon.??

Last three lines are a perfect way to end a perfect poem..?
