not again –
this awakening
rests firmly
in the hands of time, will this last
or shatter like fragile glass

Journey Ends

Muddled message
A memory here, a thought there
The very unexpected reference
by the most unlikely aquaintance
Your unmistakable energy
set out in the universe
Telepathy by unusual means
A fluffy white feathers delicate landing
on my windshield
A final message
A journey ends

a flower closer to the root
bidding farewell
