Adrift

The days accumulate like sediment
adrift on river bottoms
settled layer-wise swirling
sifting in tomes of dusty wisdom
watery pages dissipating
disintegrating
awash within the Tides of Time.

The years stack like magazines
abandoned on the corner-tables
of doctor’s offices
the detritus of coffee mug rings
spilled food and stains
collecting upon glossy covers
now dull
perfect smiles and bodies sullied
by the gathering Dust of the Ages.

The decades dance in memories
gone sepia with distance
childhood visions of sunny days
classroom and playground dramas
family secrets
and friends long gone
bring smiles to souls adrift on spirit’s
watery expanse, bubbling emanations
of perfection in dualistic form
promised eternity
in infinite portions
of ineffability.
