” SPRING SHADOW “

spring shadow

This year, spring came without you.
I didn’t know how to feel about it,
so I ran from it.

spring shadow

I hadn’t seen my own knees,
bare in the sunlight
in such a long time,
hadn’t cared to be seen
by a world that went on without you

spring shadow

My breath came in gasping bursts,
a mouth that forgot how to eat anything
but gulps of air

The budding trees still looked stark
against the vivid emerald grass,
the fluffy and blue of the sky

ORIGINAL QUILLS

I couldn’t imagine the leaves growing in,
filling up that empty space
where the sky fit just right
between the branches

So I ran, another stumbling shadow
in a world dripping light.
