Favorite Quote:
We are now
part of a garden, that is part of a
landscape, that is part of a world
that no one believes in. (Joshua Beckman)


In a seam of silence
where the night cradles the world
inside its blue heart, I open a vein.

Stars align, like the freckles
in your eyes.

Through my window I have seen
the white stars of snow falling.

Sometimes the image of you passes by
like the shadow of a train.

My sight goes trailing after you
among a sea of people,
in the locket face of the moon.

Now all is lost in this twilight.


The author's comments:
The title is taken from a song by The Rolling Stones and is inspired by Pablo Neruda's Clenched Soul. It is a tribute to that poem and to grief and loss.
