Asking Their Way Like Shadows

“The wind is rising… we must attempt to live.”

— Paul Valéry

asking their way

 

 

 

like shadows

in a darkening foreign country

 

the lovers chase their dream

 

and find no road-signs –

 

trying to recall faces

 

with an empty address book

 

& no words left –

 

 

 

with what hopes
will they turn aside

 

across the water?
