Reflection



A rarity indeed,
 Certainly a strange expression this day in June
 The sun breathes light upon the opened patio
 A sunset, awe inspiring, halts me in progress

 I reflect, stare, gaze in quiet contemplation
 Peace befalls me, calms me, envelops me
 In my mind's eye I see memories,
 Special times shared

 Pink flows to purple
 This time, this place slowly fading
 Please don't go. But, alas, I know you must
 it sets

 Turning inward,
 Sadness
 Choices, decisions all done and finished have led me here,
 Here to this place of reflection

 Old times gone, right and wrong have led me here,
 Here to this place of reflection
 Certainly a strange expression this day in June
 A rarity indeed
