(for my mother and father)

nash01_400The world in which I live
is a kind of an autumn
world. It gives perplexity,
day, its shape back to me.
I love my family but they
test me all the time. Now
I know when to withdraw,
when to say nothing at all.
Quietly we move towards
the surf. Hands fasten on
silence. With the complex
movements of shopping with
a purpose, talking with a
positive meaning, thinking
of peace. My mind is vulnerable,
are you? I'm like a volcanic
hill. I glow, I expand, I function
beautifully for an eternity.
At the end of the day, I think
of you, make another doctor's
appointment, worry, think.
There's no music here, nor you.
My bare feet are dirty. I must
find socks to ward off this
cold. You're inside my head
again. I'm left to count stars,
journal, to try to find the exit
out of the deed of this poem.
I think of rooftops, the Greek,
the tragedy of Antigone, the sea,
the refugees on the beaches,
warped souls every single
one redesigned for life. We're
petals. Petals on a winter
branch knowing the struggles of
farm life, periods of near-desolation.
Remember when you chased
Cameroon, Uganda, Malawi.
Now he is gone. Now he is gone.
Life, life stole love from me.
