Free Verse with Graphic


Wait, wait!  She dreamt.
The endless time of that moment is here.
The wait is over.

Gathering the silence within her mind
she opens the box of darkness.
Shadows leap upon her face … and cling.

She embraces the circle within the circle;
no beginning, no end, no stopping this.
It happened to those she knows.

In memory, a mirror reflects
the encroachment of Father Time.
Nothing she can do.

She dreams.
