Paul Seymour

There’s an ‘absence’

in the air

 

As if a puff

of sky has

 

skipped a beat,

swallowed a rainbow.

 

If memory is all

that’s left then

 

‘moment’ matters.

 

Sunlight on your hair

your human grace

 

that filled our hearts;

 

there’s ‘absence’

in the world today:

 

this spinning globe

of blue has broken

 

you:

 

I used to wonder

‘why’?

 

That mystery’s

now clear

 

we hold the key

as infinity

 

draws near

 

yet I didn’t hear

you going.
