For My Grandfather

FOR MY GRANDFATHER

And so you linger

Like dust shifting on country roads

Guiding me home to a place where the southern sky may receive me

Where the endless green and gold may take me and hold me

Keeping me

I often travel these roads now

Searching for a glimpse of you

Your laughter in the evening wind

And when I am still all goes quiet

And in this place I know you have arrived

If only for a fleeting moment, I am calm

Autumn warmth setting down on skin.
