lachez-prise

far off
near silver hills
other lives roule
   en dimanche. steps taken
by cliff-framed dramatic rills.
     facebook may hint
        at emotional content…
  god
     what was her name?
       who
   shared with her? who
  is back from seeing this user’s
real content.    traversing
  paths with animals
      & children
  under a blue windless provence sun sky.  
was
a thought for an appropriate emoji? photos
& memories collide. disintegrate
in loves’ cloudless dumb cry. hands
    welcome wrinkles
    not fingers entwined
  run softly
    by nail
  skinned
bark drying beneath another new moon
    another hill,
an other life
          stolen
from under the ever-cycling sun.
