Lattice work solid,
stained weathered
from rains.
Scrolled arms of iron,
cherubs at the meeting.

Posed angles
the seating giving
resting invite
after time used
layers fading
in small streaks.

Dark drinking grass
soft velvet
to the touch,
Clouds mellow
airless ,
twine drinched in
wine of nothingness.

The position of branches
rock easy ,
construction of a toy
in use,
A play ground.
Alas no laughter,
not a sound
but the memory.
An accordian
music
just the touch
as the monkey
dances for
peanuts.
Where are you,
my heart plays
the tenor.
Are you there
or am I stuck
in the middle.
Is that you,
or the shadow
when I call for
you.
Are you here,
behind the
aroma of
caramel
balls.
Maybe there,
in the shine
of a red balloon.

When I let down
my hair,
was that you?
Were you
really there?
Can I be me?
Will you want me?
Does the shade
delight you?
Can I be me,
will you invite
me,
or does my siluette
wanting light,
repent chasing,
one step behind
you.

The hollow of my hello
bellows as I stand fast
against wind tunnels
in the bust of the city.
HELLO, Hello
which way do I go
to chase your shadow?
The echoe of my
heart answers me,
Hello,
My spirit chaffed
standing me a
carved wooden
statue alone.
Stoned awake
realizing doves
have made me
home.
You stroll admiring
gardens through
September fall
of colors, while
withered and
worn,
my heart torn.

Will spring send
tenants set,
or past resemble
the pebbles ping
the sounds of
glass window,
panes of regret.

I don't know,
I can't move near
but you can come
back to here.
If you have
forgotten
where you
left me,
Im still wait ,
by your first,
Hello.
