~here one minute~gone the next~my youngest son creates clone videos~snaps characters in with his fingers~amazing to watch his work on you tube~zoodious he calls himself~I have seen many people snap out~very few snap back~before we are aware we are…~

~gathering descent~

~porch light in the afternoon~
~neighborhood covenant~
~golden leaves falling~
~rustling beneath the breeze~
~raspy sound~
~ventilator~
~respirator~
~breathing underwater~
~is he in there~
~the man~
~my brother~
~that husk lain open~
~wiggly feet~
~puffy fists of hands~
~straining against restraints~

~sky eyes looking~
~down on me~
~through bare branches~
~of late autumn~
~Colorado~
~brother’s eyes wide~
~vacant~
~beseech me~
~look through me~
~into some nether void~
~opiate~
~celestial~
~angels & demons~
~surround us~

~we are~
~discovered at last~
~jettisoned~
~golden the fall~

~the full moon~
~its attendant star~
~how decades altar~
~their appearance~
~in our sight~
~our human blindness~
~animal desires~
~bestial delights
~
~diminished~
~our steps shortened~
~halting breath~
~the sureness of youth~
~leaking away~
~bloodless & aging~
~we stand~
~we barely stand~

~remember the path~
~moss on stones~
~our fascination with shadow~
~conversations~
~hollow whispers now~
~that we were mere~
~& powerful shadow images ourselves~
~we were so wrong~

~but there along the way~
~certain to be eclipsed~
~by our children~
~grandchildren~
~deep canyon smoke~
~echoes in your eyes~
~tell me we walked~
~in tall strides~
~in some small~
~insignificant way~
~we were right~
~& brave to do so~

I feel good to feel someone feels the nature and creatures the way you do...
