One Single Impression: Liquid



Liquid:
Melting. Flowing. Running.
As the clouds that shroud
The sea from the stars in the cold night
Melt in the dawn light
To become the dew that dampens the sand
That claims the mark of my foot
That vanishes in the flow of the rising tide,
So am I:
I run
Without a trace
Along the edge of dreams
I would, but cannot, claim:
Everywhere, nowhere,
And cool with spent passion,
They belong to a dawn
That makes use of them.

  3. What a wonderful picture to go with your poem. Visual and intimate, you portrayed "liquid" in a way that has filled me with introspection this morning. So well said.

  12. I love to read your poems, Sandy. Thank you. Cleverly written too, I would never have thought of placing myself in the shoes of the melting snow products (running water).

    My favorite lines are of the runner, "Along the edge of dreams
    I would, but cannot, claim."
