The Silence of Absence

The silence of your absence
Is a lonely place to be
My companion
Since you went away
Memories of your words
Are with me every day
Like echoes in my heart
Of some lost melody
From the shadows of silence
I look for you each day
I wonder where you are
When you go away
And what always keeps you
From returning to me
I see shadows of your presence
But so far away from me
Have you nothing left at all
Nothing left to say
Friendship is forever
That is what I believed
But I wonder now
Since you have gone away
Still I wait beneath our tree
Hoping you will return
Where you placed
In its deepest heart
Your precious words to me
That place you may return to
If you think of me some day
A place you may remember
If I'm in your thoughts
One day...

After The Rain ...

After so many days and nights
Of unforgiving heat
Finally a sound once familiar
Hoped for, wished for.
From a soft morning sky
Of grey and mist
Rain falling, falling
The air is fresh and cool once more
Scented with the sweet fragrance
Of rain, foliage and flowers
In this misty light-
The colours take on a softer hue
Brown will soon return to green.
The parched earth
Dry and thirsty
Drinks rapturously.
Languid leaves and foliage
Glisten again
The trees revive, sigh
Their thirst quenched.
From small pools
Rivulets form and flow
To the lower reaches
Of the valley.
Their journey fulfilled
To replenish and swell 
The dry creek beds
And the water of life will flow once again ...
