All One Poem

photography by Susa SilvermarieThe light on the highest trees
has gone.
First blossoms of plumeria
brave their way into dusk.

The one who is not here
buffets my heart like a persistent wind.
I beg the world to go sane,
and I hear it mutter back,

Love’s road is as long as a life.
Every day more things merge
that had seemed not to touch.
More mysteries wink and enlarge me.

It’s all a single
poem, whatever happens.
Like last light on high leaves,
I imagine it will be most beautiful
at the end.
