Forgotten--By Dan Tharp--United States


long forgotten, the memories fade as fog
dissipates in the morning
hours of warming when
      the sun kisses the earth.
her outline, left undefined,
is the wisp of wind blown in
on an unknown breeze...
about which there is no previous
knowledge of her origins or
      her destinations.
whether blessing, whether curse...
only the returns will reveal
what wages lie in store for the capability
of forgetting what one never intended to remember or
what one intended but

      was not capable.

Dan Tharp is the author of four books of poetry, 3 of which are in chapbook form... Side by Side, Yielding Desire to Fate, A Season Made for Wondering and A Rose in the Briar Patch. Dan resides in Southern California.
