An Ode beyond the Graves

asphalt street
grey sky
cool breeze
affords a floor
of brown leaves
to dance and
settle on a spot

your leather shoes
an eagerness played out
by the leaves ealier

if i could just move
to welcome you
sweet heart
it would be agile
graceful as the
waltzing breeze
and the leaves
in their entrancing twirl of love

the museum and
my poems are nearby there,
your heart will flutter
like the dazzling blooms - in spring
your tears trickle in
the spirit of my verses

if i could just hold you
by the hands again
and warm you up
with my love
