A SHADOW IN SPRING

There
on a bench
where they both sat down
in a far away field
in a stranger’s town
where
on a Sunday
when the flowers were waiting
they had no idea
of what fate was planting.
There
on the edge
of a changing sky
a seed was strumming
the strings of goodbye,
there
by the bark
and pressed into bench
two lives unaware
of the encroaching trench.
There
at the dawn
of a spring yet to bloom
they saw not the blossom
that shadowed their doom,
there
in the hook
of a bench and bark
a promise still whispers
of hope that missed the mark.
