last night
I rediscovered
another way to you –
beyond the gate
between the evergreens

on paths
where truth was hiding
pressed as falling leaves –
maple stars
a canopy of dreams

fortune tends
to places
I’d forgotten now to seek
destiny where darkness sleeps
beside a memory

how am I to reconcile
verses lost to living –
broken boards with candlelight
it’s raining
all the time

heaven left a letter
on the table by the bed
loving arms
warm to us
