absence




absence
is mostly distance

compounds
with time

manifest as to why
breezes
which themselves
fickle by design
on one hand
with callous ease
snuff-out flickers
that were
barely

relinquish
the feeble
to forgotten

yet
so readily
fan
embers
that festered
as long

from brooding red
to glorious
brilliance
kindle
to glowing
from near-dead

the unremitting

diffuse
& windblown
smoke chronicles
all
in private
& obscure dialect

singed fragrance
& winsome atmosphere
as alphabet.

Lovely. Flows, and glows.

Liked the picture too!
