places in our memories


there are places we remember
times or days in memory
others knowing where we stood
and all the ways we came to be

life is lessons some will say
learning always of the changes
distant days await their new dawn
leaves across the turning pages

open to another story
seasons of a life to live
not so far away in time
another memory to give

away for free the colors still
paint the distant way we loved
the company of strangers blessing
all the days we’re dreaming of

        I miss John Denver, too, and his music and as an advocate for the environment and nature. His music will live on. There’s a park in Aspen, John Denver Sanctuary, where the boulders are etched with the lyrics to his songs (
