I speak our secret language to the universe

the stars are silent, stalwart

steady in their non response

I murmur your name to the changing trees

and hear your "hush" in their reply 

nothing has changed,  everything is different

Your stories come to me with the moon

in waves and songs of the sea

the infinity of whirls in shells, wind chimes

Your eyes are now the sky above me

I feel them watching, tenderly

smoothing the lines, listening between the tears

Alone, I am with you most

our small exchanges present in the silences

the lilt in your voice,  the poetry in our laughter

You are now my dreams 

the regrets and sorrows fading

to our new way of crossing the universe together

Outside McDonnell's

in a Tree are Happy Birds

Chirping and Singing.

There are squirrels  in

branches a Foolish 

Monkey, and they

are eating French

Fries that were

dropped on the

sidewalk by the

greasy fast food

eatery.

Hi Art,  I hadn't checked this poem in a few weeks.  You can always look up at the full moon and know I am watching somewhere out there as the song goes.  

I sometimes read healthy blogs,  and but never write poetry anywhere, never ride in a old PU and grab a beer anywhere either.  That time has passed dear friend.  For you and me,  for James, Kim,  Trig for all of us that time has passed.  Love and asparagus.

Change is our only constant.

Those who pass before us truly still "live" in our minds.

This captured all the poignant sadness of such exchanges beautifully.

Thank you for sharing.

Rita, honey, my friend.....

"but never write poetry anywhere, never ride in a old PU and grab a beer anywhere either.  That time has passed dear friend.  For you and me,  for James, Kim,  Trig for all of us that time has passed."

Excuse me for just saying, but.... HOGWASH.

*YOU* are still alive.

Your time has NOT gone past.

Stop that!!

xoxoxo  Anna
