I’m Right Here



(a shadorma)

When he’s gone
there’s an empty space
in the room.
While I wait
for his return, he remains

Inspired by
Poetic Asides PAD Challenge prompt #9:
“When he’s gone.”
and posted as Day #6 for the “100 Days of Fall/Winter 2012” challenge.


  1. Don’t think for one minute that I haven’t been watching you, PW, and been favorably impressed–esp with this latest series, and esp with this latest piece, and esp with its closing line.
    While I always pine for My Beloved Sandra whenever she travels, I’m not convinced she shares that same sense you express so excellently here when I’m away.
    Well done.


    1. Ron. you always bless me with your kindness, and always seem just to know when I need it. Your support — from the very beginning — has been truly appreciated!

      I’m glad you were able to capture the fullness of the sense I was writing about…as for your Beloved…I’ll bet she does. 😉
