Memories on Branches

Memories on Branches


Sitting in the warmth of sunlit joy
awakened from the sleep of never sky
subtly, with time, the urges rise
to leave the nest and somehow learn to fly.

Heat, loves demon in disguise,
shocks all nature’s senses into lust
cooling in the shade of lengthened day
the desire to fulfill an unknown trust.

Climax, in kaleidoscopic red,
faint hint of coolness in the bed,
winds that steal the words unsaid
cold tears of summer loves sole dread.

Sitting in the icy gale of one
no heat from fading, distant sun,
returned into the world of never sky
Reminiscent of the day we learned to fly.
