Touch: The Journal of Healing



Felled Oak

    by Stacey Dye


felled your name

too soon —

the summer moon slips

behind darkening clouds


something we never said —


are meaningless

now that you are gone

summer night

and dusk rolls in —


but for the cacophony

of crickets chirping in the woods

a vision,

you come to me —

your presence

is what I really need

this cold and lonely night

our friendship

withstood forty years —

strong oaks

evolved from saplings —

now I stand alone
