“Love” Poems For Kathy Number Twenty-Five

I TAKE LIGHT LIGHTLY AWAY

I take light lightly away –

heaven, lavender, lilac,

even May,

petals in hours

and perfumes in stacks,

incredulous flowers

that scent the dull hours.

How will I build in such centres of clay –

regret at the window, the wonder

at bay? And the hours and the shores

where the fruit is unblessed,

and the substance of death is the love unrepressed?

In such singular settings

the pointers go black

and the peace is the fire

and the heart is the rack.

(from “”Love” Poems For Kathy / Green. Laced. Leaves”)
