Writers’ Weir: Memory

Memory

By W.S. Merk

memory

is a windblown ridge

shifting in light and color

chimney smoke whispers

our shared sky

smudging your kiss

into blurred rouge questions

this morning

this early afternoon

what better time

to carelessly drop open

the sheaf of our history

and read aloud

the page that lands

open in sunlight
