wetlands second life virtual land


in second life

is a reflection of the beauty of oceans,

rivers, streams

and magnificent natural landscapes

in california.


Old friends in Second Life are precious gifts.

I will remember them forever.

Their souls are etched in my heart.


"Old Friends"

old friends,
old friends
sat on their park bench like bookends.
a newspaper blown through the grass
falls on the round toes
of the high shoes
of the old friends.

old friends,
winter companions,
the old men
lost in their overcoats,
waiting for the sun.
the sounds of the city,
sifting through trees,
settle like dust
on the shoulders
of the old friends.

can you imagine us
years from today,
sharing a park bench quietly?
how terribly strange
to be seventy.
old friends,
memory brushes the same years
silently sharing the same fears

a time it was
it was a time
a time of innocence
a time of confidences.

long ago it must be
i have a photograph
preserve your memories
they're all that's left of you
