Beyond the Few

 

I felt the rain today, felt the weight of the sky, felt
the summer slide by, felt it’s
dreams evaporate, heard
them sigh…

goodbye

Beyond the few; beholden to the all
I run away but heed the call

Watched the sun as well today, after the rain, into
the steam, after the moment had
passed, when it
all became…

the same

Beyond the few; left to the end
Awaiting my last and only friend

Heard the wind today, deep in my ears, slide
past fears, handled as
well as expected, when it
turned to tears

years

Beyond the few; beholden to the all
I run away but heed the call

Today I smelled the ground, steaming, rising
waves of heat on tarmac riding
currents of breathy wind
shifting and sighing

crying

Beyond the few; left to the end
Awaiting my last and only friend

All today my senses rose in concert, waited
talking, roaming…always fated,
as the day unfolded and
I lived a life created

traded

Beyond the few; beholden to the all
I run away but heed the call
Beyond the few; left to the end
Awaiting my last and only friend
