memory, light, returning there

just a day ago a day
sunsplint in eye come shining
a wake along drive

a day winter day to afternoon under memory familiar poles
and spines of built brick places windows scatter light leaves
home to visit one day's visit just a day and then on the long road
time travel for pedestrians day of walking through brightshadowed
haunts revealed new to light new light in memory when walked
long before this pattern of steps by the courthouse at dusk in
resolution to meeting the dead there once then not now gone on
and I find myself carrying forward the entire village around me

long stalks of bicycle spokes spun catch light
stride forward a cluster of timeshadows in scarves
