I Was, Once July 6, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — deliciousphrases @ 1:41 pm

Old beams, silver-grey’d with time

The trails of long-dead worms etched across their surface

Cut, hewn

Lifted into place – heave! Heave!

.

Carefully aligned, then

Settling down with a sigh

To be functional for generations

Then to be useless

Then to wait … to wait …

.

For someone to sit,

To listen

To pause from the noise of life and hear

“I was, once…” whispered through the dust

.

………….. bg

    Yes! I can hear the dust-whisper, BG. I liked the “heave” of the beams and the waiting … and the later pause.
