All That Waste (Twiglet)

All that waste…

Trust is precious

Commodity.

Heart spent it

Recklessly, without

Counting cost…

Your self-centered greed

Pervaded every hour

Each ‘transaction’.

Silver, sapphires

Pearls, diamonds set

In gold: kind words

Free, refused me…

Instead, your rage.

Drawstring bag of

Treasures…naĆÆve

Love you trashed.

This loss I hold…

Bereft of dreams and

Purest, coveted

Gem…Time.

Time’s Silvered Blur

Time’s hands run circles

Etching stories on my face

Convert, squaring rows:

Months’ pages racing past…years

Too swift gone to capture glimpse

~

Aged vision blurs glass

Poet’s rain…words ripple, pool ~

Relentless, seek healed

Quietness of soul at dusk

Where blessed-rest at last is met
