young lovers
holding hands in a café
sharing a pastry
their faraway look ahead
… my look back

  summer drought
the mockingbird returns
his sad song:
this man that she loves
this man that she married

before the mirror
all I see
is myself staring back …
I once was a married woman

in the lake’s mirror
my face
without my dreams –
even the lilac flowers
split up

  new love
after a breakup –
in the silence after rain
the rock garden fills
with fallen stars

space Chase Fire - USA

    the birthplace
of life
in a slip of clay –
this potter’s wheel
of stars
