Still born twin

 

Evening comes.

The cremating sun hides

in tangerine dreams of

mourning  clouds,

that you’ve never seen.

The air is crisp with the skipping of

tantalising breezes

that you’ve never tasted.

I would have shared these things

with you

had you not been swept away

before your first glimpse,

and breath touched life into you.
