We Know

We Know short poem

Photo by wplynn 

The old tree, tall against the sky –
It’s still there,
black, gnarled and lonely.

The small laughing children I knew –
Are somewhere,
older, changed.

You and me.
facing tomorrow and
memory.

Where are we?

As old April, an instant away,
draws us to the changing play
we stay above the restless tide,
take our churning ride
but do not lose our way.

Sometimes we
hear the old story,
but never mask love behind “love”.

We’re here.
Some wiser –
