Even The Sky – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Instead of “Let it go,” we should probably say “Let it be.” John Kabat-Zinn

Even The Sky

I return,

but nothing is

as I imperfectly remember it,

the places I used to frequent

aren’t the same sepia tint,

even the sky refuses to be a memory,

the flowers no longer speak

as they once did,

my mood is on the loose

looking for a feeling,

at once muted, at once excited,

trying not to locate a grief

as I attempt, just for a moment,

to rekindle yesterday.
