January 6, 2016 Sunday's Whirligig/ Knots of Love Untied

Knots of Love Untied

trying to tie knots           no easy task                  organizing memories into bundles

memories of father & mother husband child friends          memories of home

life before                       life after                        you were a part of it all

memories of you             still hard to believe       all could be untied

in an instant                    ashes scattered to the wind               in four directions

your words of anger        trembling                      i record all your words

in memory                       my throat tight              i stand speechless

you make accusations      there is no logic           no yesterday

no tomorrow                    the shoes you wear       are not crystal slippers

i do not know you            fumbling                       i let go

the knot                            that held you                 release you from my heart

  1. This is a deep passage you are making, my friend. I know the feeling - the sorting of bundles, before and after, the look at shared history changed now with the other's incorrect perception. Oh, I know. The release will allow our hearts to carry on.
