did you think that i had disappeared?
oh my dearest,
in the off-chance you wondered at my absence
i am still here
somewhere between up and down, right and left
suspended in thought, preoccupied in stillness
but happily here, nonetheless
as you see,
my feet have come to light upon the ground
i will try not to depart too soon
for our mutual liking, hoping that
you are still here
maybe returned from your own journey?
were you not dallying in the clouds?
making friends with the moon and stars?
seeking audience with the sun?
no, you say,
you were just waiting patiently for
