It is not
the imperfections
of an old bed
or night stand

I would miss
but the memories
or feelings

I shared with it,

that it shares
with me.

What is it of us
that attaches to
things
to furniture?
Smiling at me, they know.

How does the medium
in a candlestick
holder
read the message
see
its absent owner?

Powerful memories
feelings
immaterially
imprinted

Mere description
of such objects
conjures
closure

Paint chatted
with Dream
about Hands

What colours, shades
strokes--
The rainbow
that lives in feathers?

House answered: Yes!
Dream agreed.
Hands waited,
patiently helped.

Sandals
tread elegantly

exit
existence

Sandals' gravity
yearns for steps
effecting eternity

Seeing life simply
existentially effervescent!
Ashes
love's sacrifice
remnants of a message
fertility

Air's gift to Earth
