leap, leaft, leapt

She leaves then

Quietly as she came

Slowling turning her back

Wincing at the budding

 

garden she coached from clay

 

Stinging nettle and mint

Rising to meet the sun

 

That’s me.

 

a single golden seal

Reaching toward her reiki sky

Scrolling my fingertip

Along her cryptic blog

Wondering where she’s resting now

 

I’ve collected all our giggled lunches

Our sore throat teas and soups

Our crying over spilt milk

Laughing laughing at each other

“What the hell were you thinking?”

 

All together

They don’t fill the singed hole

She leaves

She leaves
