S p a c e s
Fingers flit across frets —
Strong oaks, hummingbirds zipping,
I see them and smile,
Thinking of you.
In ribbons of smoke, that leech
from embers, and rise to wrap
the moon in an invisible embrace,
I imagine you, ghost.
In soft faces that light up —
Christmas in June, delighted by
crinkling wrappers and white hot sparklers,
your face slips in and shines, a mirage.
In the bent of shoulders,
stooped quietly, steely gaze, and
tranquil moments, between silences
and sunrise, there is only you.
When bark scratches my calves,
stained green by blades —
and night shines over my camp,
I know we share this moment too.
At breakfast, savouring warm
oats and morsels of day old bread,
sitting happily on dewed logs,
Feel your sweet gentle gaze.
