Attempting to defy time
But melting line upon line each day
My face now tells only whispers
About the younger me

Here and there

In between
what’s here & there
we lived a life
& lost somewhere
the dreams we dreamt
when we were young
& left in words
of songs we’d sung.

YOUNG LOVE

Breezy memories
of a stolen
afternoon together
furtive touches
of young love
on the winds of joy

wise

old herb bush
watched young

weeds

excited at
rapid growth from

seeds

soon lady with
her spray
– cut short
their display
