Denouement: A Diamante*

Begin
fresh, new
opening, hoping, reaching,
start, pristine, tainted, decayed
closing, sulking, hunching,
old, tired
end.

Departure: A Diamante*

Earth,
noisy, disturb,
screeching, moving, screaming,
tired, worn out, peaceful, silent
calming, sparkling, appeasing,
steady, laden,
Heaven.

Lost
clueless, numb
searching, waiting, hoping
blank… futile… alive… real…

rescued, saved
Found.
