The joys of love are but a moment long
the pain of love endures the whole life long

     ~ Old French Love Song

I wait in the garden while you pack
preferring birds and flowers to drama
the sky is overcast
dark wooly clouds gather
the passionflower so long thirsty
lifts itself higher  
higher  
longing for drops of rain

this is a leaving trip
and you will go alone.  

tiny gray chickadees  
wear rakish black caps
soberly peck between the paving stones
occasionally look up
worried questions on their faces  
thunder?  
leaving?  
really?  

the long awaited rain
a bit player today  
waits

Wonderful imagery indeed.
Much enjoyed the read.
Happy NewYear Hugs, Nancy

In the midst of winter,
I found there lives within me..
An invincible summer.

I like the part "the dark, wolley ... the passion flower raisis ... higher ... higher.
tantilyzing suggestions of what I almost think,  and then think not.
Thank you, kKate, for a fleeting glimpse into your world.
