Investigating astral accidents

astral

Sitting here in the silence of old memories
I watch as once familiar faces recede into starlit distances
way back  and beyond the moons softening glow
though only adding to the mystique
of your beauty
yet I still hold  your treasured memory
for posterity
or perhaps for all that’s left of time

I used to wonder if your memory ever
traveled  somewhere …….anywhere near mine too
perhaps bumping into one another
and then making silly excuses
for the astral accidental
somewhere in the longest night
perhaps  there by Orion
or beside `Pleiades

Now days  as I see young and beautiful women
smiling perhaps in invite
No ……simply in kindness to an older outdated man
hoping perhaps for an older outdated kindness
undelivered by some uncaring lover
but they do make me wonder often
Where were you when I was young ?

And I often tell them whenever  asked
Don’t worry you’ll have plenty of chances
these are not the last of the dances
just keep that beautiful smile and firm grasp
all will come in time
maybe even arriving out of the night
from a sometimes uncaring universe
maybe even some halved astral accident
bumbling along
waiting  for the right  half
to show
Is that you ?

Sometime in my life, I started to write about my life journey, in poetry, in story perhaps to sort them out and enter them into a place of safekeeping. The soul of the writer is perhaps best described in their words, emotions and thoughts. If these poems or stories touch something inside you then maybe I have succeeded in sharing. I will not write about my self in profile, because self isn't so important in writing. Only the journey in words and the sharing are important. Why would we say "Now about me!"... I'd rather write about life, nature, serenity ...

    It does seem as though sometimes the Fates have missed something somewhere. Does it not, Ed? Lovely verse, my dear friend.

    Beautifully emotive Ed and I love the phrase ‘astral accident’. I’d definitely like a few of those. Heart-felt and wonderfully penned my friend.
