Storm in Africa
You wrote daily
The wind in your words
swept me to spaces
sown by wild orchids,
stalked by lean lions.
But a new love captured,
carried you down
fresh pathways, lay
beside you when wolves
prowled in the night.
Our storm now peaked
and passed, I am a leaf,
with no memory
left of its home.
