Absent

Your pleasing presence

Has a vibrant energy

It shakes the sonic spectrum

So that even in silence

There is not quiet

It is truly quite magnificent

 

Yet this week you are gone

The house is unusually still

The breath of your life is absent

The dishwasher a logistical masterpiece

But the stillness troubles my soul

So I await your return with bated breath
