accompany you home

leaf waterfall

Dear Larry,

as the winter winds travel across Wyoming’s landscape

the swirling snow releases its memories of you, lost upon Casper Mountain

its frigid touch awakens me to imagine your

aloneness in that wilderness of blinding snow

cries, deafened by the river of winds,

calling out in hope for

a human form to emerge out of the whiteness

the warmth of a human hand

the sound of a voice, comforting you

to accompany you home.

as I become lost within this winter’s swirling thoughts

the river winds tear into my soul

releasing tears arising from

the darkness of grief’s aloneness, seeking

a knowing to emerge out of ignorance’s darkness

you found peace

within a loving presence

that embraced you

and accompanied you home -

until then may refuge be found within the nature of things.

  1. Wow! I’m almost without words reading this tribute. You have truly expressed the essence of this special person in your poem.

    • thank you for your words … brought to mind Kahlil Gibran’s words on joy and sorrow, “when you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” Yes, special.
