Not Alone (rev)

Formerly: Abandoned, But Not Alone

Abandoned but not alone
in a carnival kaleidoscope
where the beat goes on – sure
and steady rhythms strong
tho’ the dance is not the same

Abandoned in a fractal frame
shapes unfolding fern-like
fronds debasing a rigid plan
of our sometimes strained but
still amiable relationship

Abandoned by the ways
this late growth gained
credence taking precedence
over ambient years of benign
untutored friendship

Abandoned but not alone
with memories of you
a flower in bloom
renaissance of spring
scent of my dreams
