A missive to missing

IMG_2584

Dearest Pa,
for such thou are
be-framed behind
my splendid Ma

Like the garden therein
you tended – where you retire
where you retired

An impression – a fugitive form
fading in day’s light
sought in night dream
dreamed in daylight
now out of sight
but excitedly glimpsed
in bordered setting, standing
no mounted mask
but a portal to past

Loyally sought in all before
my retiring
no redundancy glazes and
you’re sincerely missed
by my father’s faithful son.
