always saying goodbye always saying hello

July 12, 2006

with each wave
these last moments
bathe our consciousness

there is nothing else.

the breeze
takes our hair
to wave goodbye

jobs are waiting.

put the tiny shells
in your pockets
I tell the boys

so the big ones won’t crush them.

two buddies –
they are eleven
never to be eleven again

the wind dries the tears I hide.

2003
