1st Temperament v

Unknowing fingers
brush the shelves
where I have kept
memory ashes

my sacrificial relics
settle lightly
in sunshine

they scatter
in slow motion
quietly troubling dust

then nestling
in much worn fibers
they come to rest
on this newer plane

the hand that moved them
in answering to me
will be held


  1. This is the last poem in REFLECTION the first section (or Temperament) of Auspicious Circumstance. Auspicious Circumstance was written by Ballard Borich and published in 1988.
    Two more sections will follow.

    Thank you for your looking.
