a 'Universalist' !
thief of time
bare rock and trees awash
in grey-cold December rain.
beyond this lonely winter window,
lies an alien, somber, indifferent world
with the silent thief of time in waiting,
to defile body, mind, and spirit,
leaving the heart an empty vessel
bereft of all joy and hope,
but for memories and dreams
of Spring and Love … forever young …
that shall simply NOT be taken.
