Poem: One Sighting



by Katherine Givens

In the quiet we parted.




Years without you,

New memories

Submerged the old,

But one sighting

And the past flutters again.

Pale blue pebbles washed upon the shores,

Your eyes.

Sunlight weaving through dried fields,

Your hair.

Whispers dripping in the rain,

Your voice.

In everywhere, in everything,

I remember

My infatuation for you.

The old never burned,

As I desired the new,

But whirred in the thickness

Of smoke.

Now second hope

Wipes at the soot

Smudging my glass heart.

But with another goodbye,

All shall crack

And break.

As once before.
