Fragments of the bridges we burned
In the charred grey haze
In the soft blue grass
My hand on your future
Your palm on my past
Little scraps of clouds I packed
In the zippers and pockets
Of the walls we moved
And the paint we peeled
For the dreams we drew
Under stark white dots
Oh, the skies we knew
Bigger than the snowfall over those mountains
And bigger than the love all over these hills
Our sky was on fire
Our hearts were our needles
Our eyes were a compass
Our bodies unbound
Bigger than the words repainted from ancients
And bigger than door frames over this house
Our sky is on fire
Our blankets untorn
Our love is like water
Our bodies still warm
(sorry for the delay. I’ve been relocating and adjusting. Thank you for your patience)
I absolutely love this …
Thank you, my friend! 🙂
I have missed reading your beautiful words my friend, I’m glad things have calmed enough for you to return to us! 😀
Thank you, jadedheart! The forces of nature seem to be against me writing, but I have yet to resign 🙂
Glad to hear it, never resign! Your words say so much. 🙂
That is more encouraging than you know 🙂
I’m happy to be able to give you encouragement then 🙂
Hi Vampire Weather! Thanks for coming by, I’ve been away for ages, I think you had been also, now I read you’ve moved so that explains alot, its a huge and difficult thing to move house. It’s good to know you’re still here with wp and good to see your back, and of course as always…its good to read your beautiful work.
Thank you Nikki! Moving is always an adventure, and leaves little time for anything else. I am not done yet, but I am a little more settled 🙂
I always get excited to read your words. Wonderful as always. And I understand. The movers came a month ago and my room is still not completely unpacked.
Thank you, Sarah. Free spirits are hard to pin down 🙂
Glad to see you posting again 🙂 I especially liked the last four lines 🙂
Thank you, Lydia 🙂
Welcome back VW I have missed you and was only wondering about you the other day. It’s good to see you back and good to know that you are well and settled in your new home. The poem is as ever so beautiful, interesting and clever. Again I say welcome back to word press 😉
Thank you, Willow! I have missed you and missed being back! I am glad to have the chance to return
“Our love is like water
Our bodies still warm”

I have missed your thoughts…

your words touch many VW…..
I love the feel of them…Glad you are back
Hope your move is a Blessing …..
Thank you very much, LadyBlueRose. I appreciate your thoughtful assessments of my meager words
LOLs there is nothing meager about the thoughts you paint into being…

VW, so glad I happened to visit your blog today and find you’re back, with this wonderful new poem. My gosh, your talent astounds me – this is as well-crafted as ever! I simply love every line.
Thank you so much, Betty! Your compliments are always uplifting 🙂
It is good to read your piece VW, love this, how are you?
Thank you! I am well and whole. Ever as grey as the clouds and as restless as the wind 🙂
Hi VW, it’s good to see you back again and this “comeback” poem is amazing as ever! Good luck in getting all settled, so we can read more of your wonderful poetry! 🙂

Beautiful piece, glad to see you back, hope all is well on your end… God Bless 🙂
I am doing well in my new area, thank you. I have missed being here. Life allows less time than I would prefer for things I enjoy, but I could never have enough life, I’m sure 🙂
Glad to hear you doing well, So true… Can;t wait to read more from you when you get the time.. God Bless 🙂
You haven’t missed a step. You are so talented, I am definitely a learner in comparison to you. Hoping you’re settling well in your new location!
You are doing marvelously on your own, but aren’t we all best as learners? God forbid I ever cease to learn. Thank you for the kind words!
I love this poem VW and am happy to see you around. I too have been a bit out of the blog world but am trying to trickle my way back in.
Lovely words as always from you… your poetry always inspires me. ♥
I cannot seem to get consistent again. This is my shrine and I have not heard from its presence in some time. Thank you for the kind words!
I understand completely…
Thank you 🙂
