Swan Song

Poetry by | February 12, 2012

Deftly,
I untwisted frayed tendrils
of memories and coaxed
from their strands
remnants of longings
that no longer have names
nor shapes.

As I traced fading trails
to your world, the wind
blew, sending up
in spirals dusty crumbs
of hope.

The heavens choked –
and wept.
