for Sam

across a bridge of signs
peace rolls in with the thunder
zigzag lightning traces across your face,
illumines my memory
I can see you smile
with the ache of those who are dead
but do not sleep

I reach out for you, you
evaporate into a thought
I have miles
and you have eternal rest
but do not sleep.

the picture in the frame
stays the same
and sometimes we touch
that which is fleeting
like wild geese of Autumn

we leave no trace in the sky
our shadows gliding over earth.

A peaceful poem that I enjoyed!

a picture is worth a thousand words and I guess it is true. I think that it might also be true, that they bring to mind a thousand thoughts. You brought to mind many thoughts and I went to look at some pictures. I thought many wonderful thoughts! Thank you, ~ Gee

and teaches by means of opposites,
