I TAKE LIGHT LIGHTLY AWAY
I take light lightly away –
heaven, lavender, lilac,
petals in hours
and perfumes in stacks,
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”)
