Invisible Aerie

Invisible Aerie

I want to rest inside your memory

all the details twigs and straw

leaves and sticks your face and voice.

I will forget

the pebbles and rocks

that caused discomfort.

I want to feel the softness

of sanctuary in your missing eyes

since you've flown off.

I will remember your body

and look forward to your return

even though the sky grows dark.
