Poem for the beginnings and the endings

Snow filling ravens tracks
Near a fence row
Where the wind fell down….

Dripping wax inside the rain

Something weeping inside this wall
Silence and memory aching here….

In a winter wind storm near the woodshed
Grey hair
On a piece of wood where

Old ones passed….

Ghosted dreams fall out of our dreamtime
to sit among us….

Foggia ghetto
April 9….
