Panels of time slide
against tectonic sheets
remembrances past
rub the present
leaves moved by breeze
her heart to tease
in waiting, melancholic shuffle
the years pass yet never gone
as life struggles on
leans upon settler walls
volcanic temple stone
cut and laid, molded icons
prophets, guard the door
before, the garden singing
in overflowing green.
