jingle bells

jbm

The air is sweet, as if filled with your breath,
it is as honey, or a field before a storm.
It is magnolia, or the pale pink barbara’s button
in the small garden I passed in Oglethorpe Square.

In the shadow of the great oaks and Moravians,
I felt your nearness in the weight of humid air.
via molecule to molecule your flesh touched my flesh,
as the redstarts swim the space from tree to tree.

But this is the last, gone trace of you. I walked
into the sun, across the cracks of broken Broughton St.

    A place for the ‘Sentient Bean’ to grow. The last gone trace is not. She is Savannah, always near. Appreciation is greater this time around. thanks

  4. Hey Seb! Nice to see this one arrive – I always liked it 🙂 Are you enjoying yourself here? I am meaning to write a lot more but I don’t want all the drama of MySpace, so maybe I will set up here, too!

  5. Yes. this is very nice. I like that what was your last blog on Myspace serves as part of the launch of a new phase for you. The images in this are delicious – I have always meant to visit Savannah and mean to do so this summer. maybe I will track down your mythical Miss Sheila and find out what it takes to truly win your heart!
