departure

 

 

 

it is before morning when I hear you calling

I turn my head

and find your mouth  open with light

illuminating this very last hour

 

now   as I watch it unfold

the beauty of our failures

holds the image of our hands

in water

I lie still and let the tide

erase the structure

line by line

until the mirror opens up

And there is nothing left to hold

Very nicely written. It sounds like a true departure cleansed by water.

This, but especially the second stanza, is as evocative and tender and beautiful as anything I have read in a long while. You've managed to find the words to inform and illumine your sensibility, which we all strive to do but often fail.
