Knowing That All Things Must End

A poem written last year...

Knowing That All Things Must End      

Throat laid bare with upturned chin,

vulnerable, exposed, breath in--

Dare to open once again.

Every joining, holding fast,

this present joy, too soon the past--

Cleaving to what cannot last.

Linger, savor, tarry, stay?

inexorable, the end of day--

Solstice moment, parting way.

Return to one must come in time;

unclasped, glance back, let loose of  “mine” --

Silence, and the taste of brine.
