Threads of Remembrance

a quilt of cloth                               a blanket of clouds
love and memories                     ominous and foreboding
spreads the grassy mall            covers the evening sky
sheets, strips, fabric                   cold, dark, and gray
all color and design                    shade and shadow
obscures the reality                     screens the moon
blocks out the pain                      hides the stars
this shroud                                    this curtain
grows larger daily                        drawn back by the wind
the light in the world                    reveals the eternal shine
dims and flickers                         of the heavens
reality of their passing                aware of their parting
experience ends                          tide and time
memories linger                          ebb and flow
crashing waves                           delivers only
spraying haze                               bits, pieces
of remembrance                          fragments
driftwood,                                       broken shells
remnants and wreckage            scattered
of their passage                          on weathered rocks
