just out of view,

hazy,

shades of hope,



love,

peace,



intermingling, racing through tributaries,



invading,

veins of scarlet blood,



streaking down,

cheeks moist with tears,



seeking,

searching,



hither and thither,



as the years amble on,

as the flesh wrinkles …



leaving behind glimpses of soft,

gentle joy,



slowly,

effortlessly, inexorably,



as dreams settle,

floating between laughs,



onto the barren ground,

soon to wither.
