notnearenough

the monsoons reappeared
soonafter you left
and the nights turned just
coldenough
that the tomatoes knocked
at the back door andthe
peppers lost their heat.
iwaited.

the sows areonvacation
under the watchful eye
of the lonelyboar who
Does Not Like
being soallalone.
neitherdoi.

one could walk
among the cows
inthemeadow
but unless you
Are Meadow
they pretend you don’t
exist.
i amnotmeadow.

the mountains
holdtheirbreath
Waiting
for you to return
like they wait
for snow to fly
onthewind.
my heart flies
between hereandthere.

then last night
inadream you came
Home To Me
and the mountains exhaled
and i slept
inyourarms
right where my heart
belongs.
your heart
alsoisthere.

(if i cannotfeel
the beating of your heart,
then the mountains of you
are notnearenough.)
