So near, yet so far ...

So near, yet so far ...

A Poem by Michael R. Burch

So near, yet so far ...
by Michael R. Burch

Moonbeams on water
the reflected light
of a halcyon star
now drowning in night ...
So your memories are.

Footprints on beaches
now flooding with water;
the small, broken ribcage
of some primitive slaughter ...
So near, yet so far.
