that grace once promised

birthed, ten loves ago
and perhaps more
hollow and screaming, then
endless, red suns’ crimson sorrow
flickers and wanes
to the west of us
as does the flame
a dog-worn path
traces the borders of periphery
pacing, never leaving this place
aye, never finding that grace
once promised
slender winter now passed
round-blond petals
yellow memories, each
wide, and yearning, return
silent, in the trodden earth
awakened, and awaiting
and here, my loves
shall we remain
