Separation

Tanabata 2020Separation Across Sliver River

Separation

In an empty courtyard

trees near the fence

rustle like starched skirts

that sway in a slight breeze,

as stars slowly appear.

Each night brings a different

style of longing: sometimes

the heart aches with loneliness,

other nights there is joy

in anticipation of reunion.

Neither changes the situation

nor brings you closer to me.

Lainie Senechal
