In Your Absence

In your absence,

I explore the soaked beaches

alone and watch the skies

drench the cottage roof

with tinkling music.


In your absence,

I empathize with periwinkle

hydrangeas, the size of baby

heads, which droop and cry

tears of rain along the fence line.


In your absence,

I search for light

while my heart echoes

the waves as they crash

against the rocky shore.
