As white rivers quietly Rush in tandem, Abandoned in a time forgotten Captured in the sins of the mother Forever disconnected In the echoing time Of then of now? As I look into the blue gray sky When the pinks and mauves Of sunset has faded And the darkness Has yet arrived, Staring up passed the blue spruce Which have been here before I And I shall leave before them. The top most branches Stilled defined before Darkness swallows the Last breath of daylight. High above tiny white and red Lights blink A jet passes With no sound, Darkness breathes. I am disconnected As I witness the birthing Of the first evening star. Echoing to me The obscure passing of time.
