Poem - So Mote It Be

“So Mote It Be” is about returning to reality after a relationship ends.

So Mote It Be

Memories pass like fading dreams
forgotten in normality
another day lived like the first
without the flavor that’s been lost

I've returned from that place
where intimates talk of lesser things
while hinting at mighty tales
spun from affairs of the world

sanity has found recourse
back from source of comfort's realm
by turning round to the start
where all began before the fall

trivial matters put to earth
buried with the feelings lost
gossamer wings sent to the air
heavy hearts put on the shelf

the trees will remain all green
only the fruit will disappear
time reversed in the fertile glade
with wave of the dismissive hand

below, above, in-between
forever gone as I grieve
the path returns to the place
where I began, so mote it be.
