Your Bracelet

A non-descript package
arrived one day
when the earth felt
like it had stopped moving
and a continuous chill
ran from my spine
to the center of my chest
breathing became a bore
without intention
or respect
to slip away
from coast to coast
shore to shore
would have been
more than an effort
time worthy energy spent
but here before me
a simple wrapping
revealing secrets
sweet love affair
silver and gold
lightening circles
around and around
sparks shooting
memories
across the sky
flooding questions
who are you
and who am I
prompting electric
sentimental remembrance
when time passes by
…I wear your bracelet
