White Markers


Visiting minds, collecting thoughts, preparing paths
towards fulfilling life.

Unheard of ideas navigating their way through past
memories, seeking refuge in the mainstream of a mind.

Piloting narrow lonely roads, circumventing words,
searching for clues unspent in the totality of unread
inventions, filled with unspoken sentences.

Resting slightly on never-ending displays of strength,
forgetting daily intakes of overlying breath.

Forgotten are the words of explanation, buried beneath
the sandy knolls, white markers tell sad stories of a
life known once before.
