stone colored glass

by Jeff Flesch, Monthly Contributor

I often think about the past
it’s like looking through stone colored glass

hazy, and filled with trauma, a cold place
inside my chest

lingering among flowers, thought and feeling

reconcile me
in two drops of love

they cascade from the leaves of my heart, while
I spend time looking above

finding blue in the mist, as feelings
are renewed

of the love that’s always shined through me and you
