vaaldain (parents)

 

your names

enjoined

with mine

are absolute.

I am your

blood

conjoined.

you never have

disowned me

cold-shouldered

ripped me

into shreds..

Iíve never

had to walk

eggshells

or bitter shards

of love gone sour

around you..

 

 

 

 

Baritone

 

 

If only

 

I could

 

touch the

 

texture

 

of your

 

voice..

 

caress

 

 the

 

timbre..

 

fondle the

 

tone..

 

It would

 

be manna

 

from Earth!

red flags

adorned

your

still

form..

gentle

firm

hands

laid

to final

rest..

shapely

arched

feet

in repose..

oratorial

rousing

skills

forever

stilled..

that

day

you

were

celebrated

set

a free..

this

time

over

lifeís

work

almost

done.

 

Za Zen

Best not

recount

the limits

of that

which

touches in

ignited

ways

 

Holds me

close

from afar

steady

yet giddy

helps me

tread

deep waters..

 

It was

meant

so why

to fear

the outer

sphere

when inner

chimes

resound
