Magpie Tales 188: Once We Gathered....
where once we all gathered
where once we all gathered, others do.
the path is continuity, every voice, change.
shadows are recall, a blur of faces, too.
do you remember the cadence of laughter?
can you step jolly over jagged paths? future
has no mind to desire; wind will turn leaves,
rain will dampen every ground, its water
falling torrid as the bitter past.
