North to Alaska...

When you’ve gotta run, might as well be North!

Have you been there? Done that?

crying, weeping, sad
the wind contorts
whistling, whispering, chillingly bold
as in stillness?
no, just still
be still, sit so to be forgotten
soon shadows close in
holding tightly
the fears of loss
where did it go
a precious moment
soft grey fills the space
where you once sat
next to me
not long ago


Hard day today; just needed to close my eyes and let my thoughts drift aimlessly across the letters; stringing them together subconsciously, like a weaver after years of labour, not needing to look; the weight of the words rush forth like a river echoing the tears falling on silk.
