Chosen


When the rain

Falls as gently as this

Like leaves dancing down

From a tree

Savouring severance

Like deliverance

Or like considerate guests

Walking on tip-toe

With a finger on the lips

Lest they wake a sleeping child

I step into a dream

Right on cue

Where everyone looks like everyone else

Everyone knows everyone else

Their faces bathed in a twilight glow

As if their eyes have seen

That there is little to choose between

The seen and the unseen

All turn towards me

With a knowing smile

'At last, at last, we thought you were lost! '

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
