an empty house in my heartland

11218711_450934235096482_1578569887368474789_nthe wheat has ripened, the lavender is fading
white jasmine breaths into grey signs of rain

in your lively days, you were light and laughter
now i know you as a shadow across the face of the moon,
an empty house in my heartland
