"Light Echo" Illuminates Dust Around...

as if failing
were an option- –
light bends beyond
the distant horizon,
reds to black peace.
A silver-gold flashback
bleeds yesterday
into a river
of tomorrow light.
His memory an echo,
lulls me- -in
a spin again.
Dark ink spills
across the landscape.
My thoughts- -wild horses
in wonder- –
trekking the silences,
mapping the wilderness
of his soul’s valley.
I sleep with shadows
safe- -within the echo
of him, floating
on a river
of tomorrow light.
