A Fragment of Healing

A fragment of Healing

‘Neath a tree
bending o'er a crystalline pool,
she peruses an image
once tangible.

Gazing back
is his illusion,
a figment
filtered through tepid water.

Relief waits beyond . . .
down through concealed depths
to a place veiled eternally
in quietus.

Pensively, she enters -
gliding past haunting visions
of translucent repose
and is mindful of her fate.
The journey pierces
mirrored memory,
the snare
and inception of this passage.

Plunging

deeper

still
.
.
.
toward ebony’s bed,
she seeks serenity’s abode
where his image tarries.

At last, they meet -
familiar strangers
trapped in an eternal,
lingering embrace.
With eloquent caress,
tremblingly soft utterance
he bids,
wake, my Darling.
