Happiness,
elusive
ethereal winds,
grasping hands.

Evading
skillfully,
shadow to
body.

Eyes set upon-
fleeting,
beasts before flame.

Rest a while?
Calm,
this grieving heart,
sooth,
a peevish mind?

Visitations-
scant
snow in summer-

Taste-
sweet,
lingering kisses.

Remembrance,
awaiting-
Reunion.
