Velcro feelings disconnect
Eventually, but these
Time does not dissolve, their outlines
Etched into the sea.
Rest easy, then, as we erect
Among new-planted trees
No ordinary wayside shrines
Sustaining memory.
Days like these allow one
Again to move on. For what is gone
Yet lives, remembered ritually.
