THREE WEST—#12

THREE WEST #12

I’m starting a new series…backwards!  THAT IS…when it is read, it will be in proper order.

The series is poetry about  time spent in a mental health “lock-down” facility.  Any ressemblance to real life is purely intentional…some names have been changed or modified to Protect The poet!  🙂

EPISODE #12:

IT IS THE END OF HIS TIME IN LOCK-UP!

“LEAFING”

(A Haiku)

Growing tree branch,

Shed leaves healing nations…*

They go from THREE WEST..out!

–J.E.C.

  • .*..leaves for healing…see The Book of the Revelation 22: 1-2
  • FADING FAST
  • (NOT a haiku!)
  • Quick as the morning’s mist,
  • Memory faded fast…
  • Kie a dream from which we awake
  • Some experiences don’t last.
  • Names of persons encountered,
  • Were lost in misty mind fog…
  • Acts iof mmortal kindness
  • Are kept in Heaven’s log.
  • To his friends of that short time
  • Whose names are fading fast…
  • Remember me however you can,
  • Till the final lot is cast!
  • –Jonathan Caswell
