H: Homeless

I find you

in the tiniest things:

that little box

which has a little bottle

of your aftershave.

 

I search you

at the oddest places:

that pine tree

on the hill path that winds,

turns into the clouds

 

I see you

in the largest spaces:

that laughing moonlit sky

with one lone stray star

giving it company

 

I tell you

the strangest dreams:

that dark brooding fear

at the very bottom

of my frightened heart

 

I hear you

in the saddest songs:

that lament to the evening

as the mourning dove

repairs to its nest.

 

You are my home

where I return all the time.

But when they say you’re dead, I’m wordless.

The light of naked truth

renders me homeless.
