Accumulation of years settles one
in luminous mist, delightful monotony
hidden from inharmonious acrimony
of sounds, rattle, shuttle, blare, blast
and screech pulling apart once passed
in remembrance, ragged edges folded
now, straight sown, neatly healing
troubled discordant moments smoothed
dissonance of meaningless mixtures
silenced in new patterns flow, falling
pitch, gentle modulation in cadence
calm near the ending, resolving life
canorous light, in simple melodious glow.
