This is left

A flag from some long forgotten country

 

 

A Camera

Capturing an image of a disappearing flower desperate to bloom

 

A Cloud

Carrying too much water to carry life itself

 

A Stain

On a sidewalk outlined in chalk

 

 

Love Pulling

Toward the outer bounds known as up
heaviness letting go, against heaviness itself

 

Oh to be there at the end of time

 

 

A Root

Reaching for connection, against connection itself

 

A Child

Being passed hand to hand
lifted from harm, against harm itself

 

 

Love Pulling

A far away voice in urgent whisper
growing louder, more insistent, again insistence itself

 

 

This is left

An absence similar to lift lost in the dark

 

 

A Terrorism

Made of the unseen like wind passing

 

 

A Wave

That gives way to morning
opening into a darkness against darkness itself

 

 

A Cause

Being defined as purpose to push apart
the visible as reason against reason itself

 

 

A Broken Stick

Marking the path from a tree to last step
taken without certainty against certainty itself

 

 

A Piece of glass

Being crushed in the wide open house
of mirrors hiding reflection from reflection itself

 

A Hat

That has given up on being worn

 

Love Pulling

The meaning from existence from extinction
so near the cliff of time against time itself
