At Peace

Posted: October 29, 2013 in Poetry

In your eyes I see distant skies
Swallowing pain and tempest too.
Behold a clinging leaf on your stern
Hanging in vain for sunny skies
Buds in waiting, sensing a storm
Shadowy clouds masking them all
How long will this journey last?
Searching you, then soothing words
The quest is over and am laying down
Hanging my pen and walking away
Never the same here or there
In your silence, is my end

A woman at peace and so be it …
