Tonight You Being From Me – Aonghas Macneachail


Although the journey of stars 
Were between you and me
The thread of silk will not decay
That bound you to me 
That tied me to you,
and tonight you being from me
I am in darkness
sending words to you
my heart’s cargo
heavy dark words without shape,
vowel and consonant
Multiplying to sense
as the foliage of trees
bends their branches
in darkness
in the breeze
leaves sporting their green
first flicker of dawn.
