Ever Bearing Light

 
Yet this morning was like any other,  
The repetition lost  
          in remnants.  
Every season falling  
            in a soft flurry on the sand,  
                  on the wooden-weathered  
                        mellow decking,  
                  on the brittle edges of a haunted stare.  
No fire in those hills,  
                              no finger  
                  bare of august blooms.  
            (the quiet rain)  
 
Do I find you beneath trees, here  
                  bathed in sunlight?  
And through these eyes do you shine  
            so bright and bold?  
What sort of lines would ever hold you...  
                  kindly scattered  
                  leaves.  
        
Yet this morning was like any other,  
Floundering around in the lashing breaker-waves,  
                        in crashing lake splashes,  
                  sprinkling hisses upon rocks.  
While our socks were  
            there in the sand... waiting.  
            (as in the heart, these hands)  
 
Though... many winters passed  
            before we found  
                  them again.  
Of course, you were merely a ghost  
                  by then...   and I  
                        had no idea  
                        (oh morning)  
            what hurt  
            you bore.  
 
Do I find you here,  
            bathed in the breezy  
                        green dances  
                  along sunlit tips?  
And of this world, shining out  
            from forever within  
                  you...  
Thoughtfully scattered amongst  
                  all the moistened  
            roots and pavements  
            (all the same).
