the ping
of the night watchman’s staff
on gravel
a pounding at the gate
too early to hope it’s you

  you alone
know just how
our love will be spun …
I am caught fast
in the web of your charm

space Keitha Keyes - Australia

    in the midst
of my tearful confession
you reach out –
tenderness for the one
breaking trust

slow summer days
drawing us nearer
to our leaving
    so much to plan for the future
    so much to miss of the past

  let us not
blow out the candle tonight
let it burn
give its last flicker
when it will
