High Above The Pepper Tree

High Above The Pepper Tree


Your words moistened becoming rain

standing for an instant on dry ground

diving under rock without a sound


Silence echoed its personal bane

canyons changed their orientation

moments flowing without direction


Looking up but seeing nothing to chain

moments fell off high cliffs of memory

forgetful river meandering towards sea


Worries, blight brought seasons of pain

earth’s clouds passed over sun or moon

hearts are broken as always too soon


Green came shimmering wild and sane

we wandered in time where now is free

traveling high blue above a pepper tree
