Into the Blue…

Penumbra

Your presence is undeniable –
pervasive despite your absence.
The smoothing green that concealed
a deeply gashed landscape
holds the last vestige of your effects.
Secreted within furrowed earth – unfound –
these pieces are the essence of not knowing –
this man, this boy – this heart, this soul.
All that remains are static clues
to a life once lived
and the shadow that has fallen
over the lives of those that remain.
The eclipsed life of a man of mystery –
extant in spite of death.
