late dreams, autumn (poem)

late dreams, autumn

some flowers open and close
day and night, blossom and
fall spring and autumn.
i do the same on these
mountains. the sun rises
i put on tie and smile
it falls, i put on
blanket and reading light
and i sleep.
october passes and dreams
of memories stir
foggy blurred chilled
why scared now, hands hearts
lips touched, smiling once
friends and loves — oh
still there
at night i grasp for
these fragments
my dreams live in the present
are made of the past
and dance or die in december
before spring arrives
once more
