Summer Eclipse

Summer eclipse of the soul
Breaking across the waters of time
Ticking clocks melting over a bough in Limerick
Ash leaf veins protruding
Floating like a thought loss
Downy swan feathers wafting on a Sea of Hope

On the River Shannon
Rusty browns greasy grays
Of dreams of yesterdays
Architecture sweeping arms lifted in the Rain
Soft stepped, dimpled footprints on the Lawn
Timeless memories shrouded by a
Glorious Moon
Waiting for love to break open
Across an eternal ecliptic sky.

Handcrafted poetry by John M. Hines, Summer Eclipse, 2017
