#OctPoWriMo – Day 25 – Equinox

starlings

 

Will you recall the moments just before

the scene changed?              Most likely

the aftermath will be in the forefront

of sinister memory               Darlings,

starlings            Away toward winter

 

Clouds ruined every view you

carved and polished perfectly

out of a sky you felt safe enough

to rely on           You can’t dance

anymore or else you would

 

For the rain       For the icy snow

For the migration of old thoughts

to new thoughts       For the desire

to relocate from wherever your

shadows reside

 

Tell yourself this is unforgettable

And then spend a lifetime struggling

to remember fragile details       Those

delicate displays that transformed you–

your unavoidable equinox
