The poem(s) are below...



Moments dwindle
in fragile isolation, 
a touch of doubt, 
as Dresden china, 
of past days. 

Strewn thoughts, 
lost in short sentences, 
the past scattered 
and forgotten. 
Fragile future, 
silent horizon, 
calm sea in the lee. 

Past days, 
fragile as morning dew.
Presence opened in the book of silence, 
forgotten in the afterglow.
