On the edge of light (Photo: Faye Sarras)

Green growing on the edge of light
Curling climbing where we might
With those thoughts, the memories
Tunes we learned, forget the fright
Love we yearn, remains in sight
Refreshing everything we‘ve seen
Images, tones and touches screened
Filters feelings wrought, our histories.
