inspired by Jessica Galbreth's painting "Tattered Dreams". They really go together, so you should take a look at the picture while reading the poem.

Everything I worked for--
dust.
beauty of ages turned to rust,
it must
have been lost
somewhere along the road
of my grand adventure, long since stowed
among the crackled leaves
litter'd 'pon th'eaves
of the palace turned to
dust.
The cloth I wove,
The dreams I sewed
--like the thread I spun--
all have begun
to trickle, to run
down the sides of my goblet (once filled).
my heroes are buried on the hill
in ages of
dust.
