Wednesday's Wishes

Wednesday’s Wishes
Lisa A. Williams

Wednesday’s wishes
followed Mercury’s muse-
So much to say,
enough to fill an empty
Wishes for more,
another life
to begin again
holding death at bay
To remember
all this-
 Cache of understanding
and acceptance
in a place where time
has no mercy;
on the heels of the messenger
                                                                         it flies away

  1. love this piece. Hermes/Mercury is such an interesting subject, and you have captured the essence of one facet of the iconography. You write with such restraint and attention to detail. Thank you.
