Beyond our windowed views
long dark shadows root
that would devour
memory of shared truth, hands held
in compassion or help.
May we emerge
from this darkness,
across the shattered shards
as hope shimmers
gate from our beach room in Labourie, St. Lucia
Escape from the chill of Vermont April; from the final days of my daughter’s senior high school year; from North American life as we have come to live it.
Escape into leisurely warm days and balmy beach walking nights.
Escape into time away, together. Memories.
