Passing On

abandoned car-
I contemplate
what’s after death

desert sky
her eyes
full of pink

before therapy
bluebird and sparrow
one chasing the other

tender
the slight bow of reeds
her day of passing

night wind
she spills secrets
from so long ago

death of a child
I watch a sea bird
take flight
(RIP Jayson♥)

Stars and Jasmine

catching a glimpse
of her eyes
discovering stars
a lost childhood
smiling back at me

autumn sunset
waves at our toes
we catch eyes
hers full of stars
mine full of Venus

around the garden
a scent of jasmine
I inhale the night
allowing that part of me
to blossom

under stars
huddled in his coat
a hint of jasmine
remembering the night
before she said goodbye
