Particles of what once was
whisper on the wind
Hush and listen!
See it dance in the light
faint though familiar
fragile but fading

As if to say goodbye
particles of what once was
caress my cheek
stop and feel it
as they catch the wind
and like wings take flight
and darker falls the night

To shine on other sands
to rain down on other skins
hear it falling
while on mine, I see lines,
indelible lines etched over time
the precious particles of what once was…

  1. Lovely, Damien. Particles of what once was. . .It made me think of the play we just saw called “Constellations,” which was about a couple and the different timelines they might encounter in parallel universes.
