Observance

Forcibly entering one’s consummate sacred space
while I view the world through a broken windows trace

Secretly intent to commit a crime of time and thought
without right, you carried away more than just store bought

Collected treasures of placed memories and ancestors passed
there in the morn and gone by evening’s contrast

Tokens of love, friendship, hope, memorial and peace
adornments of creative splendor and inheritance by decease

Scented glassworks of antiquity, precious metals and stones
all have a story to tell, a heartstring resonant of bondstones

Keepsakes of all our relations from travels afar and near
instruments of medicine shared, now in hands insincere

Contemplation reveals fears’ victim has said good-bye
while serenity’s observer awakens within my mind’s eye.

Artist's Description

2 weeks ago, our home was burglarized and this poem was the result of some observational process…
