within the rise and repose—
of the untethered soul.
Illuminated amid white sands,
Revealed long after revered sorrows,
Unforgotten love is unearthed;
Souls’ presence venerated in the,
Adored relics summoning them o’er ages;
Restful repose amid the dunes,
Where two departed, cross paths eternal,
In the tranquility that alluded them in life.
Hewn timbers under a brokenhearted sky,
listen if you will to venerable spirit’s whisper-
echoing across tearful winds that cry.
Red wood, white cloud, blue Heaven,
amassing broken pieces to stitch spirit’s revered breath-
unfurled amid a sorrowful procession.
Seasons pass giving way to centuries,
adorning hearts in whisper and breath-
hallowed unforgotten patriotic memories.
Through distant fields of tall grasses,
Weary eyed vigilant gaze on horizons,
Lonesome march absent masses,
Towards those sunsets and sunrises,
Flesh adorned with scarred lacerations,
Torn open again-dried blood,
Those old damned wounds of our nation,
Healing slowed like steps in a mud,
March on through that sorrow,
March on to that tomorrow,
Those hewn timbers transport us to a time long since past,
Our lives forever woven with these heartwoods.
Upon that hearth we swore "I Do" as loved ones amassed,
Our love’s covenant shared beneath cedar wood.
Love will challenge at times, seem unscalable-though needn’t,
Ours to be such an unreachable summit.
Far off journeys begin with those first steps together. Our path will exp
high one, you know sun and moon,
great Titan hidden.
