Two Stanzas for Joy, Wherever She May Be

I.

The light kept on and seen
From fast trains passing by
A silent bridge over a clear
Stream. Feet creaking the
Timbers above.

II.

Symphonic strings heard in half-
Dreams. A scent of lilacs by an
Ancient, chipped place. Solitude.
No person but trees and wind and
The smell of rain somewhere…

    Liminal spaces, one scene from afar and another in memory, are both evocative of joy!

    I can’t think of anything better than the smell of rain and solitude (not loneliness) – crisp and clear as the first drop of rain on hot asphalt
