The Singing Mind


by Diane Averill

When the mist begins a slow spin
around the pines

look for the shimmer of a minnow
just after it has disappeared from the skies

and if you forget to see
these things we once shared

then you might still notice when your shadow
disappears softly into the night without mine beside you

or maybe when the singing mind
slows down into soft sleep

you may begin to know
I’ll be visiting tonight in a space between your dreams

and we’ll continue the conversation
we never really left.
