Fragmented Snapshot

yesterday,
the moon and the sun
exploded into fragments

yesterday,
an orange blossom was deserted
on a midnight star across
a strawberry field

yesterday,
a castaway was lost in an
azure sea, lost like you
and me in the midst of dreams

yesterday,
consequence and loss
met for the first time
on the steps of redemption

yesterday,
beauty and sadness
recovered their lost souls
inside the cathedral of fools

yesterday,
an explanation gone
unheard, stolen from
lips that burn

yesterday,
something happened
and i looked the other way
