bone silence

for the effort of the trees;
winds giving what they will,
mountains stare in mute authority.
my shadow a timid reflection
of winter sun
no more….no more!
only give so much of yourself
before remembering–before
shutting every door.
well-rounded justification finds its familiar spot,
somewhere between countless graves
,forgiven smiles.
on the edge of nowhere, i
listen,
for what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger….
these different roads;
these many times i see her always as she was — no longer afraid,
no longer a part of the remembering.
