Golden Tears, Fuente del Turia -- Turia Fountain, Plaza de la Virgen, Valencia, Spain


Tears flow golden
Down her cheek
Then fall to ground
Where forms a pool
From gentle creek

There streams and rivers
Come to rest
Display the sorrows
Which some detest

“Wait for the facts
You can’t protest!”

What have we
But video
And patterns written
Long ago

To actions spoken
Our words will out
If some won’t listen
Justice shouts

The Colour Fading, Eastside Road, Okanagan Lake, Vernon, British Columbia, Canada

The Sails Long Furled

In the calm
In the calm
In the gentle calm
With the sun now gone
And the colour fading
I trace the line
In reflecting mind
From a day long past
One last empty kiss
The sails long furled
On a love at rest
I trace the line
Of her long wet tear
A single note
One regretful smear
Not for promise lost
But what never was
I’d held too long
To the love she gave
Held her close
Held her heart
Knowing all too well
Love went just one way
