2 Poems by Bruce Levine

Times Remembered

Times remembered
Now repeating
Now receding

Vacant mem’ries
Hollow entries
Long abandoned

Empty journeys
Once remembered
Twice forgotten

Open highways
Never travelled
Dreams forsaken

Faded glories
Full of promise
Now depleted

Long lost treasures
Stolen chances

Silent voices
Empty spaces
Past erases

Times remembered
Now repeating
Now receding

The End of April

Varying shades of green
Leaves unfurling
From buds in the trees
Yellow, orange, gold and red
Colors of fall given over
Washed away by rain and snow
Shadows of tree limbs
Playing in the grass
Ever changing
Holding the future
Retracing destiny
Of life and love
The sap of trees
Rising through its veins
As birds take wing
And flowers bloom
Secrets revealed
Through knotted pines
That, ever green, remain
The forecast of spring
