"Donning Your Jewelry" - Gail Tyson

 

Clasping the fused-glass links around my neck:

we’re together again on that infinite

coast where Japanese floats wash up, sea-green,

cranberry, amber baubles, beach-strewn

shards of light like these, sunbeams once dappling

your collarbone.

 

Looping black-chased silver butterflies

around my wrist: they’re confused by my scent,

losing their way on their great migration.

Our rambles to the Canyon, Chiricahua,

Tubac always circled back to your cottage,

emptied now.

 

Piercing my ears, a matched pair: turquoise bears,

your totem. Nothing else goes together,

nothing quite fits together as I bear

our friendship, weightless now, in this world


without you, wear talismans you won’t need

any more.

you understand your tasks stand out of the herd. there may be some thing unique approximately them. It appears to me all of them are clearly wonderful! connexionrepublics
