Bruce’s Memorial Bench – a poem by Judy DeCroce

Bruce’s Memorial Bench

you were the years
days slept on

but today, sky comes down to you,
it carries an ocean,

keeps returning impulsive wind
covering hours in sand—

where in a sojourn of yellow heat
life was long and death is newer;

after a storm shudders by,
some will come and remain—gentle.
