Wintertime

  • “ The summer had inhaled
  • And held its breath too long
  • That winter looked the same
  • As if it never had gone”
  • Lyrics Jefferson Airplane Surrealistic Pillow
  • — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — -
  • You walked the path
  • Tripping to my door
  • Frozen in time, a ghost
  • Materialized by my mind, I saw you
  • Out of place amongst the palm fronds
  • Desert sand and hummingbirds
  • I smiled and you were gone
  • Leaving a trace of longings
  • And the shapes of who we were
  • Dancing ethereally into
  • The dust of time , mortality
  • Twinning and torn asunder
  • In the summer of our lives.
