I’ve seen a man who has drowned. Found face-down, blotched skin, blue and purple tinge, bruises fading and swollen. Tide had brought him in, water swirling, earth set in its spin. Someone’s everything; feeling nothing for anyone, came to rest as nobody’s anything.

Above, storm after storm.
I stroll, mile on mile. 

Under, grey on grey.

Going where earth has gone, 

a river does not lose its way. 


   

Whilst they grasp at Summer, 

one by one we let the seasons go.


Lightning piercing a distant hill,

stormy skies here stir a wonder.

Roaring winds coming to a still,

stood in silence after thunder. 


Seldom are not sorrows, nor are we sedentary creatures. No surprise dreams go in search of singing songbirds.


Tender from past sorrows, gentle the demand. 



“Were you lonely?”

Yes, less so when I chose to stand alone.
