Dedicated to Ann

Dreams Empty Harvest

The shear wispy lights of darkest bright shadows
Cleans the mind of multi hued memories of laughter’s long sound
As it whips across the open plains like a chased animal through the fields
All the while my mind clears out a place for the future
Cleaned shelves for the events yet to unfold, alone the man in the dark clothes
Gathers his arms share of the past as if it were sheaves of cut wheat
Gathering for the time when the cupboards are bare, the ice box empty
And the silence of the deafening sounds of the departure you have left me with
Cannot bring the essence of life from the gray of death
Oh why my dear sweet princess, why did you think that you could
Be happy and yet, make me so sad, and with just one seconds step off lands extension
Erase from your minds heart the pain that you saw, and in doing so
Has given me the eternity of the days to ponder the why and wonder
What I am to do to fill the space that burns in my heart of your future.
And there you are, the precious sight, the “Princess” of my heart
All alone in the space and time of this everlasting haze my heart sees
When my heart doesn’t want to beat any more, it longs for you so
The body weathered by time yet the mind clear as the choice you made
Permanently fixing in time the person you were to be, no more, no less.

To Ann 5-13-77 to 12-6-92

Beautiful poem. I'm sorry to read about your daughter.

So, you know J.T. Tiercel?
I never heard of him, should i have?
Thanks for your kind posts on my blog today. Looks like I am more of a student and you the master on this subject.
Thanks for stopping by today with the information on the coffe klatch!

What a beautiful tribute but I wish you didn't have the material to write it. I'm so sorry for your loss...
beautifully written
