Slip-sliding Away...



PAD Challenge day 22: For today’s prompt, write a release poem.

Rain slips from windows
Leaf slips from tree
Time slips into
A memory

Youth slips so swiftly
Into by and by
Darling, thought’s hunger
Oft slips from my eye

Like rain from a window
Like flowers that fall
Like touch, as you heed to
Life’s beckoning call

I hear lost summers
As winter-song slips
Into the trembling
Of tired fingertips

Want slips in whispers
Where echoes must be
Caught in a river
Released to a sea

Ah, where is that sea
To which all moments slip?
Fueling forevermore
Drip
         by
                    drip
