waiting for the return

Getting caught up

in remembering that old way of being with you

quiet, in the shade

grown over the wall

vines like long threads still whisper of

what it was like to be new and fragile

always on the precipice of ending

how we loved each other fiercely

and kindly against the wall

of our secret together garden

now I sit up top the stones

playing sudoku and solitaire

keeping an eye out for you

like waiting for spring to return
