Separation - Poem by Sally Plumb Plumb

It is a beautiful place.....
this mystery of where you are,
full of golden trees
glistening
as the magic Autumn
shines through the day.

You are here, somewhere
amongst the leaves,
walking with the rustle
of my colourful repose,
insecure and searching.

I find your image
sometimes watching mine.
My eyes fall,
a faltering courage
in the lonely time
of separation.....
knowing I cannot
match your silence
with my words.
