Connotations of Forgotten Lives, by Frank Tavares
A sun rises. An eye opens.
A flower blooms. A seed closes.
A mind awakes. A bird's wings stop forever.
A pair of legs walk. A tree's roots fall down.
A bear learns to sneer. A boy learns to cry.
Water begins to fall. A river starts to flow.
A dandelion's seeds take wing. A peacock spreads his feathers.
An apple starts to fall. A heart begins to leap.
A boat launches from a shore. A satellite shows us a moon.
A wrinkle reaches a brow. A snow covers spring.
A window is closed. A spider-web grows.
A pen falls from hand. A book is shipped.
A key is dropped. A door is closed.
A mind unravels like strings. A string is pulled to hard.
A golden afternoon begins. An ocean tide pulls out.
A petal falls. A wind picks up.
A bird takes flight. A window opens.
An eye closes. A sun sets.
