Two Poems by Joanna M. Weston


when I slept
with you the nights
filled with sunlight

now I sleep alone
my dreams chase
a jeering voice

The Farewell

when rain stopped
when wind ceased
then came grief
deep below hurt

the leaving and goodbye
at the open door
before the closing
before the car-start

motion down driveway
vanish along road
to emptiness
of sky  earth  self
