​Saltwater rivulets
run clear
down the stone face
leaving an invisible
that only the heart
can trace
the tranquil pose
with each passing
of your absence
my equanimity erodes
I swim in the shallows
of my emotions
fight the current
traveling upstream
where love spawned
a lifetime ago
I began my journey
back to you
