Velvet green

Velvet green
Into a cotton shawl

Air drifts through
Over, within

Radiating across
Blinding light

A fragile net floating
A shifting pattern
Merges and shapes

Velvet, cotton and light
Becomes a tapestry
Shielding all

With a passing touch
Soft and fragile
Your scent remains

You linger
Not upon the branch -
Persisting in my memory

Comforting when change comes
For things return - Altered
Yet always connected

If I could write your story
From then to now
What stories I could tell
A tall tale, legend, myth?

From one story, one view
A life derived from strength
That carries those
Who are part of you

Of character that supports
Teaches and believes
One life that is boundless
A greater story than I could conceive.
