Carolyn Frost – “Telling Time”

At the end of his life
he watched the sun,
collected light from Venus
with a lens,
looked at shadows
instead of a clock
to tell time.
He thought I glimmered
with the last
light of extinct stars,
that circles of color
bloomed around me
as I hovered in love’s
eastern
window,
caretaker
of this
radiance.
