Memory’s Treasure

Yesterday’s future

tomorrow today

subsuming transcendence

in all that we say


Perpetually present

the time to recall

all life in this moment

whose instant befalls


Begin a new ending

to whirl in the wind

the clock a reminder

its hour hand spins


Memory’s treasure

the fuel to inspire

each log a new effigy

—raised from the fire


(Dreamsleep: May, 2023)
