Classroom
have
reached an age
you see a place,
stand on a much
played ground,
remembering through
another’s eyes,
surely it
wasn’t
‘i’.
the years
they go
i let
them go
yet these pictures
on the field of
fresh cut grass
mown short as
we were
then
i would keep
them still.

saturday,
no kids to
admire it
a swallow
settled bright
in sun by the
classroom window
darkened in
reflections
tells the story
in elegant line of
flick and flight:
so it is done,
the mind shall
dip and soar
till mind is
done
our days
undone
into light
out of dark
reflection.
