This poem was published nearly three years ago and I’ve decided to reproduce it here.

I’m sitting

on a park bench

seeing nature’s skeletal frames

all around me


And I’m smiling

as I see you

lying on a blanket

of nature’s shredded skin


You’ve a radiance

that surrounds you

and keeps me warm

despite the cold


And your splashing

of nature’s skin

reminds me of your love of the pool


You’re also floating

in the water

on your back


On your back

is where I next see you

Floating between life and death


The cadence of your beat

helping my comfort

then bleep….


A watery film obscures my vision

and I close my eyes


When they open

my vision’s returned

but you have not

and the pile you played on is undisturbed


Just like my memory of you

My darling sunshine
