LOVE HEART UNENDING
by Douglas Penick
A pale sun rises,
And mist drifts upwards
From the frozen grass.
A single lifetime will not serve
A fragment of the waning sun
Lights the gold cascade of falling leaves.
Suddenly they rise up in the open air,
Dancing on a vagrant breeze
Each a new-born golden butterfly,
Free, alone, transformed, alive.
And call and whisper
As they fall to earth,
And whisper fallen
The faint snow mountains and fragrant pines
The black night sky
Thus we know
And speak with the living and the dead,
Held in their hidden love.
