Progress Report.

"My need has frayed with time; you said it would"
I can now do the everything and more I once could

Walking on the sunset of sandy shores, my toes
Exult;dance;rejoice – my mind (not heart) bestows

A weary peace under an orange bird-streaked sky;
Scribbling love, lust and loss that heals, never lies

While conversing with caffeine, my heart (not mind)
embraces desire and chance; priorities realigned

My stories unfolding, and not missing you, although I may
admit that near my mind (and heart) yesterday

In a tired twinkling twilight, I turned over a week
and remembered a lady-like spaniel, at her beautiful peak

"And wished you had been there to see her
                                                      play;

But that I only mention by the way."

Inspired and based on the poem of the same name by Vikram Seth; obviously my version compared to his original is a like a glossy magazine compared to a first-edition classic. I owe that man much too much.
