Waxing poetic

Temporis Momentum

Calico and dandelions blowing in the wind

Whispered to the world what once had been

Love rests

Love rests

In her chest

In her chest

Denim shirts and coveralls

Atop the mountain in the fall

Love found

Love found

Unspoken sound

Unspoken sound

Morning lullabies

Winter flurry, firewood and moonlight

Love came

Love came

Close and tame

Close and tame

Using hands to gather in the field

Holding them under the table he had built

Love kind

Love kind

She would never again find

She would never find

Afternoon in October crisp

Sudden bite of apple kiss

Life slips

Life stops

On a western mountaintop

On a western mountaintop

Bandanna warm, soaked in blood

Praying for the grace of God

Love’s solitude

Love’s solitude

Choking cries into the woods

Fruitless cries into the woods

Last words lying on her lap

As his fevered head and eyes slipped back

Love lost

Love lost

Bitter cost

Bitter cost

Now she digs the grave, stark and lone

Heralding the way home

Love went

Love went

Back to where it had been

Back to where it had been

Willow weeping yet again

Branches write his name on them

Widow’s love

Widow’s love

Wanders where there is no sun

Wanders where there is no sun

Calico and dandelions blowing in the wind

Chant the tale of what once had been

Love rests

Love rests

In an anchor

Attached to her chest.
