Poetry by Robert Stone: Helpless Watch, a sonnet

Helpless watch
- a sonnet about resolution
Could this much time have come and almost gone
before not meeting face to face again?
Routines have filled the days from breaking dawn
and covered broken dreams of where and when.

Could thousand thoughts have stirred and struggled out
before a resolution to no more?
To know quite often is to know more doubt
and wish conditions as they were before.

Could one desire inflame the fading soul
before the dust to dust finale plays?
Emotions are a mutable patrol
and helpless watch while passion is ablaze.

Each life event must seek its restless place
within the tapestry of living space.

- Robert Stone, 25 November 2012
