Naked

I stand naked

while emerald robed brothers

watch from afar.

My brittle skeleton

fractures in the wind

as dew drops like tears.

I once drank deeply

of secret springs

and warm summer rays.

Sweet memories

filled with fruitful seasons

echo from the hills.

But, time’s sand

trickled down

my mountain side

And left me here

to join with dust

and ancients in their sleep.

  1. Magnificent! You captured wisdom and light with these words, you speak of something greater than reality, larger than the singular form… beautiful piece.

  2. Your poem causes for reflection. Beautifully worded. If you don’t mind, I would like to print it to share with someone or someones at a future date.
