Beginnings endings

Heat is a vibrating mirror
of summers past
and cicada songs.

Along the stream
all the branches are black with winter
and lost birds.

You had a favourite scarf.
We wrapped it round and round ourselves
until each felt the other’s heartbeat.

How do I hold these stars
if even the sky
lets them go?

The most important things
run their course and die
but Disney lasts forever.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
