Morning Aperture


Boundaries between this world and the next
blur as I stand in mist
feet upon the earth, arms raised
billowness seeping from the sky.

I tip my face into the hovering cloud
spirit worlds surround me
and you are here,
my cheeks moist from your caress.

Slowly, sadness comes with warmth
as sun clears the air, blues the sky
eyes tear to realize
I am grounded, and you
are truly gone.

    Maybe it is because of my view of eternal life that I find this poem so heartbreaking but hopeful at the same time. Beautiful.
