A Little Something …

With camera-for-eye

I seize a million moments

Of tidal dance –

That happen by rote;

Mere background for others:

A little something taken away,

A little something returned.


One of those that

Would have made music of this

Left earlier this week,

Sad news,not bad,

Part of a circle

I am reminded

Watching black-blink lizards

Walk the bones of past priest-wizards

In the temple of rocks.


Others,  heroes and opponents

Have gone this way,

As must we all

One day.


Is it a better place?

For the moment

I am happy not to know.

A little something taken  away,

A little something returned.
