S Reeson - Tranquillity


As she rises, I begin; continual improvement


from the pull that sends me forward,


no longer holding back… as she traverses,


we find comfort in a night, time’s slumber


once was fitful, without hope simply


becomes most vital space to contemplate:


as she falls, they begin anew, remembrance of


an epoch when mood was someone’s life


a passage across wax and wane, mind’s game


nobody ever played but everybody knew


allowance of transition through marked phases


acceptance of concern, pale light performed.
