Visions of you

I see your face


On the canvas

of my fertile mind

each time I close

my eyes.

Then, appearing in

the nebula above

while gazing

at the skies


In visions of

the night

as I lay down


Then, shining

from the dossier

of photos

I’ve been keeping


Even the trees

conspire, as

arty leaves bend themselves

to show off your reflection

And petals of

my favourite flower

so clearly manifest

your sweet perfection


Yes, everywhere

I see you

Like a haunting

that I just cannot evade

Though now long gone

and memories

are all that remain –

connection still is made.
