Lost in Thoughts

On a lead-colored
January dawn,
I am indifferent
to imagination
as the branches
in the oak
forest creek
I am reminded
that sunlight
consoles hardwoods.
In the net of memory,
I leave behind
your silhouette
as I tread across
where I wait
for you
in the mildness
of morning
where I am haunted
by sentimental lyrics
of a forgotten song.
