let my words be such
that they grow from silence
answering you
as they must answer me
with their wisdom

my anger off
in layers
until I'm naked …
this water moon

    change your clocks
change your batteries –

how much longer
until I fall back
into that good night

on the day
of your funeral
jacaranda trees
are blossoming
… don’t they know?

space Jan Foster - Australia

they planted years ago
in bloom again
the widow puts his picture
inside her dresser drawer

    the chill
of that long-ago morning
won't leave her …
on the opposite shore
a fawn watches its reflection
