Phantom memory

My thoughts turn to you
at odd moments when the light
pauses before dark

Slipping from twilight
as evening breezes whisper
shadows become

We dance through the night
while the moon plays memories
to the watching stars

Dawn steals you away
hides you from the light of day
the night calls you back

Life is not a tree
but a vine
finding ways
to hang on

Speeding Time

Time speeds past unchecked
sucks the substance from our lives
leaving only dust
memories that with a breath
follow fickle time away
