A Language of Absence

I will leave the pressed flower in the book I never read

the one you placed into my hand so many moons ago

your own moon long eclipsed

I cannot now believe I carried those books thousands of miles

and your shadow longer


  1. Beautiful poem, Linda. I loved it. I read it over and over and just enjoyed and felt it every time.
    Love the picture you took with it as well.

    I've missed your writing
