Departing Winds (new poem)

Departing Winds
by Tim Kavi

departing winds
carry the silent sounds
of captured stories
in the gliding winds

as eagle's wings
are spread

I wont tell their secrets
but will respect
the dead memories
that can no longer hurt

as they suffered
in their own mind's truth

what a wasted youth
of their seeking
shattered young ones
battered old ones too

beneath my flight
was the wasteland
of unconscious night

made present
in their sighing

the eagle lit
with healing branches
in its beak

if I could only speak
knowing there is sorrow

but flying
I will go and come back
the eagle

to heal more of you
