Garden Path – Diana Raab

Path in the garden – David Burliuk

Yesterday I followed
a garden path
to the end of the sky
you touched the day
you walked to the sun
on that path of rocks
that escapes my name
right now when you touch
the cold shoulder on your side
but also the one which wants you,
every waking night
when I am without you.
