Woman in an Arch of Trees by Byron Beynon

I have walked a path
that resembles the way she goes,
time’s leafy screens
with those dark trees
arched closer straining to hear
words which are said
but never recalled
on a journey such as this;
I see her now
about to wave,
coming towards me,
gentle proof
that small windows of dappled light
still open to guide the mind.
