Frail Hands: Memaw

Sept. 9, 2018

Frail hands and pale if not for exhausted veins-

blue webs like memory lanes collapsing 

as nature encroaches on unremembered paths.

These bone thin hands have seen things, built things

set the blocks on this lineage I call my own

and though now they run cold; invitation 

to hold them in my own as we stroll

            There's not enough time!

            Not enough time...

but still enough time for a smile- My dear

you look so beautiful today

and I love you
