They are absent from this photograph

the things that came between us : silence

 

and the way it breathed in sleep, shadows

crossing our minds and the cold wells

 

of eyes no longer seeking. They are absent

from this photograph, this time of love

 

when sunlight from water caught our glance,

held us, consumed us in the eyes of strangers

 

bright love, charting a course like the caiques

bold and shining, heading to sea around us.
