No Matter How Many Pages Are Turned

This brown leaf,
fallen in autumn,
serves as a bookmark.

Just as the full moon
serves as a stint
in my heart
to keep the blood flowing
after your departure.

Nature has every answer
that cannot be gleaned
from these pages
that I read and read and read.

Killing time
until the clouds come
with their rain
to take the place
of all these tears.
