season to season
from barn to yard to field
we meet on common ground
our holy ground
the kept and the keeper

  I set the candle
into the damp sand
my skin absorbing
beeswax and vanilla
the scent of old hymns

    you rebelled
against authority,
chose freedom …
now from your wheelchair
the sky has no limit

I ask her
if she believes
in superstition ...
a fantail plays
outside her window

  what is there to say?
so many thoughts written
from past to present
       love and death, joy and sadness
       my words are new only to me

space Adelaide B. Shaw - USA

    too early
to think of death –
I close and bar the windows
… just in case
