Gold On The Pond

Photographs of you from yesterday   .. turn gold
like the leaves that were left after north winds have gone
Now, left with the memory, ....I'm swept far from home,
where hours were measured by gold on the pond

There are bittersweet pictures that I've locked away
of picnics in summer, and crisp autumn days
Where a long winding trail has followed the sun
before weight of winter silenced the ground

    ...Under the moonlight water would glimmer
       I still remember the call of a loon
    ...Under the starlight, we watched the moon slide, 
       over the pond and the rippling tide

Now, there are only the dreams, tucked away
where the hours are measured by love that we made…
here in my hand…
and  found in my heart……like the gold on the pond

    This was beautiful, a bit sad but in a shimmering way. I really enjoyed this.
