City Scenes XIX: Shuttered Windows, Vacant Hearts


your travels 
unravel shadows
this night unfolds. 
inklings of 
years past 
sparkle and fade
in gardens wet
with ocean waves
of tears to 
taunt my 
heart ( the 
one I've sheltered 
with distance 
and muted 
response) : so 

go with your 
sojourn heart. 
I'll gather 
and repose
this night sky 

as if rain clouds
had never 
covered my
