Leaving

Goodbye little house under the stars

and flashing planes

I spent the dawn through

out here, listening for the chorus.

I made a garden here,

now arching over the path in pinnate peering melliferous luxuriance.

What happened to those loves

who passed through me here?

Where the windowless shed shelters under iris and corn cockle,

in a dumbfounded gap toothed stare

back toward the dark empty lifeless

Home

 

But emptiness erupts

Like shedding a weight and rising to the top

for breath

A life flashing through me as I rise

And memories pour out

like a burst paddling pool

greening the parched grass.
