The Fear of Fall

THE FEAR OF FALL

 

 

Though clouds have cleared

still I fear

 

their returning fall.

 

Your smile reflects

my whispered yearning –

 

presence and absence

jointly affirming

 

love’s own reality.

 

Each meeting proclaims

a joyous creation –

 

departing pre-figures

my fear

of the final fall.
